Default Bug#463253: reopen

reopen 463253
thanks

Hi maks,

please reconsider your decision. This is not the right way to handle
such issues, as it breaks the systems for lots of people.
I, as co-maintainer of hal, can't immediately come up with a patch. This
takes time to test and do properly.
The right way to do this, is file bugs against all relevant packages,
add a tracking bug and when all apps have been ported to the new
interface, remove the deprecated interface from the kernel.
The current approach is a disservice to our users.

Cheers,
Michael

it doesn't really matter if that one is open as at least another
got filed.

ack
it seems that userspaces didn't yet grok up the /sys interface,
was worth a try, will be redone in april.

Ok, that should be enough time ;-)

Btw, this is a reason why I'd suggest to use

CONFIG_ACPI_PROCFS=y
CONFIG_ACPI_PROCFS_POWER=y
CONFIG_ACPI_SYSFS_POWER=n
CONFIG_ACPI_PROC_EVENT=y

for the etch'n half kernel (given that it's 2.6.24). But I'm sure you
already considered that ;-)

Cheers,
Michael

sure etch+half is not a dev version.

see d-kernel thread for several config options that will be different.
