[Pkg-acpi-devel] Bug#529604: acpi-support: at startup, checks for laptop mode before laptop mode starts

Package: acpi-support
Version: 0.122-2
Severity: normal


  In /etc/acpi/start.d/90-hdparm.sh, there is the following test to check
whether laptop mode is running:

     && [ -e /var/run/laptop-mode-tools/enabled ]


$ ls -1 /etc/rc2.d/

  That is, the acpi-support startup script runs before the laptop-mode
startup script, and therefore it never detects laptop mode, and therefore
90-hdparm.sh always sets the hard disk's APM mode, regardless of how laptop
mode is configured. Please fix.

  (I do realise that this might actually require changing laptop-mode's
rc?.d/ symlinks rather than acpi-support's, but this seemed the right place
to report this anyway.)
