Description Walter Neumann 2005-08-30 05:49:37 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
acpid scripts that depend on the lid status fail since the directory
/proc/acpi/lid has disappeared in the upgrade from 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 to 2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 .

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot kernel 2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 with acpi enabled

Actual Results:  The directory /proc/acpi/lid is missing. Previous kernels provided
/proc/acpi/lid/LID/state which recorded if the lid was open or shut on a laptop. 
Scripts that depend on this therefore now fail.

Expected Results:  /proc/acpi/lid/LID/state should exist and give lid state.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Walter Neumann 2005-08-30 05:58:18 UTC
Correction : /proc/acpi/button/
is the missing directory that contained /proc/acpi/button/lid/LID/state 
in previous kernels

Comment 2 Alexey Starikovskiy 2005-08-30 13:45:16 UTC
2.6.13 should have /proc/acpi/button again

Comment 3 Seva 2005-08-31 04:00:46 UTC
/proc/acpi/sleep and /proc/acpi/ibm are missing as well after the same upgrade

Comment 4 Ariel T. Glenn 2005-09-11 20:28:14 UTC
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4988 claims that 2.6.13-rc6 has the
fix, if fedora folks don't want to jump to 2.6.13

Comment 5 Mace Moneta 2005-09-16 03:06:47 UTC
The same problem exists in recent FC3 kernels, though 2.6.12-1.1378_FC3.

*** Bug 167655 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 7 Dave Jones 2005-09-28 10:10:08 UTC
this is fixed in the current fc4-updates-testing kernel.

Comment 8 Dave Jones 2005-09-30 06:59:43 UTC
Mass update to all FC4 bugs:

An update has been released (2.6.13-1.1526_FC4) which rebases to a new upstream
kernel ( As there were ~3500 changes upstream between this and the
previous kernel, it's possible your bug has been fixed already.

Please retest with this update, and update this bug if necessary.


Comment 9 Walter Neumann 2005-09-30 11:28:09 UTC
Fixed for me in 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4
