README

acpid for netlink
=================

This branch of the acpid project includes support for netlink and the input 
layer.  The latest version can be found here:

  http://tedfelix.com/linux/acpid-netlink.html

Previous (1.x) versions of acpid relied on /proc/acpi/event which is a 
deprecated kernel interface for ACPI events.  Newer kernels use netlink and 
the input layer to send ACPI-related events.  This branch of acpid uses these
new interfaces.

BUILD NOTES

Before installing, the chances are pretty good that you are already running
acpid.  You'll want to kill it before installing the new version.  While
"sudo killall acpid" might work, it is likely that you'll need to work with
init (e.g. upstart, systemd, ...) on your particular setup to stop acpid 
completely.  For example, with upstart, the proper incantation is usually:

  $ sudo initctl stop acpid

acpid version 2.0.15 introduced autoconf.  To build versions >= 2.0.15:

  $ ./configure
  $ make
  $ sudo make install

If you want to start from scratch, use autoreconf to regenerate the configure
script from configure.ac and Makefile.am.  This is not normally needed, so
be sure you understand autoreconf before using it.

  $ autoreconf --install --force

Older versions (<= 2.0.14) of acpid simply required "make" to build:

  $ make
  $ sudo make install

CONTACT

Any comments or patches for this branch should be sent to Ted Felix:
http://www.tedfelix.com  ( ted -at- tedfelix -dot- com )

You can also fork the git repo on sourceforge and submit changes that way:
http://sourceforge.net/u/tedfelix/acpid2/

DIST NOTES

Before making the tarball:

  1. Check the version number in configure.ac and the Changelog.
  2. Update the Changelog.
  3. Check in all changes and create a tag for the version.
  4. Push to sf.

To create the tarball for distribution:

  $ make distclean
  $ autoreconf --install --force
  $ ./configure
  $ make dist
  
Once complete:

  1. Update the version number in configure.ac.
  2. Update the Changelog for the next version.

Overview
--------

  ACPID used to try to handle events internally.  Rather than try to climb
  an ever-growing mountain, ACPID now lets YOU define what events to handle.
  Any event that publishes itself to /proc/acpi/event can be handled.

  ACPID reads a set of configuration files which define event->action pairs.
  This is how you make it do stuff. See the man page for details.

Implementation status
---------------------

  This version should have complete support for generic handling of events.

Requirements
------------

  For 2.6 and newer 2.4 kernels, ACPI seems to be fully integrated.  That
  should be all you need.

  The ACPI kernel driver should be working on your system before trying
  ACPID.  Verify ACPI is loaded by verifying the existence of
  /proc/acpi/event.

Compiling ACPID
---------------

  type "make"
