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.

Submitting Tickets

You must be logged into TRAC to create tickets. Please login with your Netlabs login id.

If you do not have a login id, please login as user 'guest' and password 'netlabs'. To request a Netlabs login id send an e-mail to Netlabs Community Mailing List.

If you login as guest, please put your name in the ticket description. This makes it easier to correlate tickets and mailing list threads. It's also nice to know who we are communicating with.

Before entering a ticket, please read How to collect logs.

Collect the data that applies to your issue and include it with the ticket.

Milestones and Versions

When entering tickets, you will be asked to provide a version and a milestone.

The TRAC documentation defines these terms as

  • Version - Version of the project that this ticket pertains to.
  • Milestone - When this issue should be resolved at the latest.

For new tickets, the version will default to current ACPI version (i.e. 3.09). If you are reporting for some other version, please override the default. If you are opening the ticket for testcase release, please note the testcase version in the ticket summmary.

The milestone will default to the next scheduled ACPI version release (i.e. 3.10).

Genernally, once a ticket is opened, the version should not be changed. If the issue is not resolved, the milestone will be changed to reflect when the ticket is expected to be resolved.

Tickets will be closed as resolved when the reported issue is fully resolved. A ticket is considered resolved when the reporter states that the issue no longer occurs.

If a ticket can not be not resolved for the current version, the ticket will left open and the milestone will changed.

When an issue is corrected by code changes, it is recommended that ticket is updated to show the Subversion changeset number.


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.

Currently, ACPI Switches by System is probably the best place to go to check if your motherboard or system is already supported by the ACPI driver.

Eventually, this information will be integrated into theCompatible Systems database. The information will also be available sort by brand.


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.

Mailing List

As you might have suspected, ACPI is a Netlabs project. The project URL is ACPI

The support mailing list is at ACPI Mailing List

To subscribe to then mailing list send a message to Subscribe to ACPI Mailing List. The subject and body can be empty. You will receive a response which you must reply to to complete the process.

These lists are EzMLM mailing lists. If you need help subscribing, see Netlabs Mailing Lists.


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.
