This seems to be the wrong component (acpi is a command-line utility related
with acpi), and also FC-6 is no longer supported (and F-7 is near the end of life).
Thank you for your bug report, but as Patrice points out, FC6 is no longer
maintained and Fedora is not issuing updates for it. You are welcome to reopen
this bug against a maintained version of Fedora, preferably Fedora 8 or rawhide
if it exists there.
