Sorry for getting a bit paranoid now because i am beginning to get a bit frustrated after spending two weeks without getting a stable enough system working.
1) Which version is actually more preferred? The snapshots (which I've been trying to get working but always got errors) or the "official" releases (from the 4.1 dir)?
Releases are generally preferred. Snapshots = -current which is the bleeding
edge, and as stated before there can be a lot of bleeding
2) What should I put in /etc/fstab about wd0 if I install the snaphot in one big partition?
If your swap file is on this partition then you can't put in softdep. Other than that you should be fine.
3) Should writecacheenable be enabled or not?
4) About swapfile: is it fine to set up swapfile after installing *everything* (including all the distribution sets) in one big partition?
I don't see any problems with this, but thats just me.
5) And of course, what is the source of the suspend trouble? Frankly, I have already tested a few dozen times (believe me) trying to exhaust all the possibilities: with/without memory cards mounted, with/without cards inserted, with/without AC, with/without disk cache, with/without turning on mechdep.lidsuspend in /etc/sysctl.conf ...
use zzz -z suspend
and see if it still fails to resume, if so then try zzz -S standby and see what happens. zzz -z suspend
puts the Z in a deep sleep whereas zzz -S standby
puts the Z in a light sleep.
If that doesn't work then use shutdown -hp now
until the problem is corrected. If you can't wait then convert back to a penguin distribution.
