[Pkg-acpi-devel] Bug#462467: Installation fails acpid: can't open /proc/acpi/event: No such file or directory

I have resolved my problem - I did not have /proc/acpi/event support 
(config ACPI_PROC_EVENT) compiled into my kernel (as suggested by the 
Debian supplied /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.26/drivers/acpi/Kconfig).

I was confused by these two bugs, hence I am sending this note to both. 
  Bug 440870 is supposedly just about the file being exclusively opened 
by hal and is marked fixed.

My problem seems to be to do with the retention by Debian of 
/proc/acpi/event and therefore to do with bug 462467.  However, the 
resolution to my problem is given under bug 440870.
