This is something I've been meaning to ask about ... I added acpi
support to the kernel, but did not install acpid. I wanted to make sure
acpi was working first. I messed up a power supply config once with
apcupsd, and my computer kept shutting itself off as soon as the daemon
started (yes, I fixed it without reinstalling). Therefore, I am a little
wary when it comes to messing with my power configs.
Back to acpi ... dmesg tells me:
ACPI: System description tables not found
ACPI-0068: *** Error: Acpi_load_tables: Could not get RSDP, AE_ERROR
ACPI-0116: *** Error: Acpi_load_tables: Could not load tables:
ACPI: System description table load failed
Logically, /proc/acpi does not exist. I am going to try apt-get
installing acpid now, and see if that gets me the necessary tables.
