acpid init script fails to start during boot; "can't open /proc/acpi/event"
Last modified: 2009-06-03 03:08:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Init script for acpid fails to start during boot, as well as if run by hand, with the error: "acpid: can't open /proc/acpi/event: Device or resource busy"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, at least on this machine
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "service acpid start"
Error as per above.
No error. Should just work like it used to.
Regression. At least, I've never seen this happen on boot before.
The problem is that hal starts earlier then acpid. So, when the pc runs, stop hal, restart acpid and start hal.
$ service haldaemon stop
$ service acpid restart
$ service haldaemon start
