Description Artem S. Tashkinov 2009-05-31 15:14:52 EDT
Description of problem:

1) In newer kernels much more ACPI events are reported exclusively via netlink interface.

2) In newer kernels /proc/acpi/event is deprecated and will be removed soon. Besides people like me use vanilla kernel with most deprecated options turned off.

Fedora's acpid acpid-1.0.6-11 doesn't support netlink interface and doesn't have patches already merged in upstream.


Newer package is available on sf.net homepage.

netlink patches have already been made available in Debian: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=515773

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

acpid in Fedora 12 seems to be of the correct version, closing.
