Linux*-ACPI

This project enables Linux to take advantage of platforms supporting Advanced Configuration & Power Interface -- virtually all high-volume i386, x86_64, and ia64 systems since 1999. ACPI, known as a Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) in embedded computing, is an abstraction layer between the operating system, platform firmware and hardware. This allows the OS and the platform to evolve independently. The core of the Linux ACPI implementation comes from ACPICA (ACPI Component Architecture). ACPICA includes an ACPI Machine Language (AML) interpreter that is resident in the Linux kernel. Several other operating systems use the same ACPICA core interpreter, including BSD and OpenSolaris. ACPICA also comes with a simulator, test suites, and a compiler, to translate ACPI Source Language (ASL) into AML.

There are several mailing lists you can refer to, if you need assistance or want to discuss Linux ACPI. If you want to subscribe to a list, send a mail with the subject subscribe to <listname>-request@lists.sourceforge.net or use the WWW interface.

You might want to check out the various laptop-specific lists, too.

For linux-acpi@vger.kernel.org...
Note: This list server has a 100KB message limit size. If you need to post something big, such as acpidump output, attaching it to a bugzilla entry and sending the URL of the bug report in e-mail is a good way to go.
