    Okay we're on the same page wrt that anyway. I have no probs with sg either.

    Nope I was using a 2.6.11 stock SuSE kernel and it worked fine (as far as accessing the drive goes). My drive showed up as /dev/sr0.

    Mine was a USB/Firewire drive as well but I only used the firewire. When I would hibernate with Xine playing a movie and then resumed, Xine would "go banannas" fast forwarding and skipping frames and then settle down about a minute later. My solution was to send my frontend a signal that we are about to hibernate that would in turn pause Xine before hibernating. When I resumed it would still skip some frames but playback was smooth within about 10s or so. It didn't work perfectly every time though.

    Now that I have hibernation working well wrt to audio only, I've been testing resuming with a movie going and the suspend does appear to hang (or at least takes a very long time) although I haven't checked the logs yet to see what the culprit is. Have you tried hibernating with/without reloading sr_mod with nothing actually using it?

    Silverwolf 3...?

    I've got an M-Audio Revolution 7.1. The way the ALSA mixer sees it is somewhat funky, each of the channels is discrete (as well as the various DSP devices on the card), so rather than having a master volume control to adjust, say, the front channels (left+right), the ALSA master volume can only be linked to one channel. I'm considering a Creative Labs product to replace it, which is unfortunate, as the Revolution has excellent audio quality.
