Description of problem:
I have /etc/acpi/events/events.conf:
When acpid starts with this it only loads 1 rule. The others are
ignored. If I put them in 3 different conf files all three get loaded.
I'm almost positive that in fc2 and prior I was able to do this,
though I don't have another available acpi machine to test it on.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.define an /etc/acpi/events/file with multiple event/action pairs
Actual Results: log shows 1 rule loaded, behavior confirms
Expected Results: Should load as many event/action pairs as you have
defined in a file, and show that many rules loaded in log file.
Looking at the code, it very clearly only parses one rule per file.
I don't think this is a behavior we'd change locally; it would be a
somewhat intrusive change.
