Projects / ACPI Event Daemon

ACPI Event Daemon

ACPID is a completely flexible and expandable mechanism for delivering ACPI events from the kernel to user-space. It can be configured to perform any action at all when events occur, through regex matches and arbitrary action rules.

            This can't be acpid's problem - all acpid does is listen for events. I'd take this to acpi-devel and get them the debug info they ask for.

            ACPI support for AW
            I have an Alienware laptop, with ACPI support, but my battery does not show up as there in /proc/acpi its status is always off-line. Could it be that AW's systems don't conform well, it's the 3.06Ghz desktop/laptop hybrid system, maybe that's it.

            There is a kernel patch that is REQUIRED for acpid to work. http://acpid.sourceforge.net has the kernel patch.

            acpid probably will not change the fact that your computer goes into suspend mode, it will just let you catch the event in user-space.

            If you have questions, contact me directly.

            Re: Runs full tilt, eats all CPU time
            same thing on my machine: kernel 2.4.9 on redhat 7.1, acpid 0.99.4, 100% cpu usage from start on.
            main board is asus p5a, amd k6-300.

            my computer is always going into suspended mode, when I'm working on remote terminals, that's why I tried the acpid, but the problem still exists.
            does anybody know what I should do?

            Would you please contact me privately (thockin@sun.com) so we can figure out what the deal is? You're the only report of this still existing.
