Ubuntu: Can't boot my MacBook Air 2017 after sudo pm-hibernate


Looks like hardware simply does not support such a command. Whenever I try start Ubuntu (> 16), it tries to boot and in 2 secs screen became totally black. Nothing helps.

Just don't tell me I need to reinstall it.


As Steve said in the comment, there has been a problem with hibernation in some of the kernels shipped with ubuntu, which is described here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1743094

From my limited reading, it seems to have started at 4.13.0-25, and still be a problem in 4.13.0-32

After I encountered this, I could still get into GRUB. I used Advanced options for Ubuntu > Ubuntu, with Linux 4.8.0-53 (recovery mode), and ran swapoff --all in a root-shell, ran fsck, and updated grub. After doing this, I was able to boot into my system again :) -- all steps might not have been necessary though.


In case you don't have an old kernel that you can use to boot the system, install an older kernel using live cd as described in How to restore a system after accidentally removing all kernels?
