Added hopefully useful ACPI specific content

Welcome to the ACPI Project on Netlabs

This is the development and support home for ACPI Project.

This page is in v0.0.0 format. Many of the links on this page do not yet go anywhere useful. This will get better over time.

The current ACPI driver release is version 3.9.


The ACPI FAQ contains answers to your questions.

See Getting the most from ACPI? for hints from the power users.

The ACPI Tools page contains a wealth of information an links.

The [ACPI_CompatibilityMatrix ACPI Compatibility Matrix] is the place to go to check if your motherboard or system is already supported by the ACPI driver.


New releases and testcase builds are available from the eComStation BetaZone. Log in to Mensys with your Mensys login id and click the Downloads link. Click the "Software Subscription Services for eComStation" Download link and the ACPI drivers should be listed.

You can access the BetaZone from your [ eComStation] login, but the ACPI download may not appear

New releases are announced on the mailing list and elsewhere.


Getting the sources

In addition to browsing? the sources here, you can check out the sources with your favorite subversion client.

Keep in mind that, unlike cvs, tags and branches are ordinary directories in subversion. With the typical subversion respository layout, it is rather easy to checkout more than you probably intend to. To pull just the trunk version, use something like

mkdir acpi_workspace
cd acpi_workspace
svn checkout trunk

To update your workspace with the current repository content, use

cd acpi_workspace\trunk
svn update

Driver developers that wish to make their drivers ACPI compliant will find the ACPI toolkit useful.

"trac-admin yourenvdir initenv" created a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample data. This newly created environment also contains documentation to help you get started with your project.

You can use trac-admin to configure Trac to better fit your project, especially in regard to components, versions and milestones.

TracGuide is a good place to start.
