Bug#455197: O: acpid -- Utilities for using ACPI power management
I intend to orphan the acpid package because I cannot agree with the
severity of the Bug report #444666 and I do not have time to maintain a
half broken package. Keeping any broken files in /etc/acpi that are not
shipped upstream will leed to really serious bugs.
The package description is:
Modern computers support the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI)
to allow intelligent power management on your system and to query battery and
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.
