==== What is acpid? ====
+
"ACPID is a completely flexible, totally extensible daemon for delivering ACPI events. It listens on a file (/proc/acpi/event) and when an event occurs, executes programs to handle the event. The programs it executes are configured through a set of configuration files, which can be dropped into place by packages or by the admin." [(http://acpid.sourceforge.net/ acpid Sourceforge)]

== Preparing to install ==
+
==== Kernel configuration ====
+
Before we are ready to emerge acpid, it is a good idea to modify a few things in the kernel. If you have not modified your kernel before, you may want to check out the following page on configuring a kernel manually (page to be added..).
+
 
+
{{kernelop
+
|Enabling acpid (if it is not already enabled)
+
|Power management and ACPI options ---> <br>        [*] ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) Support 
+
}}
+
{{Note}} Kernel options after this are not necessary, but are helpful in certain situations.
+
{{kernelop
+
|Removing support for deprecated acpi files
+
|Power management and ACPI options ---> <br>        [*] ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) Support ---> <br>      [ ] Deprecated /proc/acpi files <br>[ ] Deprecated power /proc/acpi directories
+
}}
+
 
+
== Installing acpid ==
+
==== Emerging ====
+
To install acpid, run this command:
+
<console>
+
##r### ##b##emerge -av acpid
+
</console>
+
 
+
==== Adding to rc ====
+
After you have finished installing acpid, you may want to add it to the list of rc services to be started with your system at boot.
+
<console>
+
##r### ##b##rc-update add acpid default
+
</console>
+
Then, run the following to start rc:
+
<console>
+
##r### ##b##rc
+
</console>
