I have a problem. I would like to install Waldorf to use the next stable debian
for a couple of years in my 6 years old laptop.
With the standard kernel I have a problem, the laptop don't resume after
suspend. The screen becomes black and unresponsive. I have to turn off the
machine. It is something related to an old Ati graphic cards its driver radeon
and Kernels newers than 3.0. According to el_koraco: ``If you have an older
card, my best suggestion is to install Ubuntu LTS, as you'll have five years
worth of support with the 12.4 Catalyst in the repos.'' But I am don't know how
to install this driver into #!.
So I installed the previous working kernel from snapshop.debian: 3.6.39-1
Right now, suspend is working like a charm but my wireless is dead.
I could not find headers for this kernel and I am not sure how to fix this problem.
So I have two possibilities: fix my wireless with the old kernel...
Or find a better graphic driver to fix suspend to ram with the new kernel.
What is the best solution?

I have the same issue on an old machine. I could try installing the proprietary driver but I don't use the machine a lot so basically I just don't suspend. I'll be interested to see if there's a workable solution.
I found a solution:
I installed a liquorix kernel and its headers: 2.6.39-2dmz.1-liquorix-amd64.
Then, I was able to install the driver for my wireless: wl.
And suspend is working with this kernel.
