Package: hw-detect
Version: 1.108
Severity: normal
Tags: patch


While installing a jessie (GNOME) desktop with the latest RC3 installer,
I noticed that we still install acpid and acpi-support-base.

A while ago, I already filed a bug to have acpid and acpi-support-base
removed from tasksel [1], since it duplicates functionality which is
nowadays provided by systemd/logind.

The same reasons apply to debian-installer.
I therefor would like to see those packages dropped from hw-detect as

I'm not sure, if the "acpi" command line utility is that useful which
would warrant having it installed by default. The attached patch drops
it as well. Incidentally, this was also suggested for the laptop-task,
which still pulls it in.

The acpi dependency was dropped in version 3.36 of the package,
and acpid and acpi-support in 3.21.  As such, I am closing the bug.
