Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 338431
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
i've installed acpid and tried to start the service but it says /proc/acpi/event
is "Device or resource busy".
a reboot sorts it out.
Acpid isn't default daemon to listen on acpi kernel interface /proc/acpi/event
in devel. By default is hald-addon-acpi installed and this daemon has exclusive
access to this interface/file. So if you install acpid after default
installation and want to start it, you have to either kill hald-addon-acpi or
If you install acpid at the installation of f8, then everything should work
without any problem.
