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..).


Installing acpid

Emerging

To install acpid, run this command:

# emerge -av acpid

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.

# rc-update add acpid default

Then, run the following to start rc:

# rc
