Specifying MODULES="all" in /etc/defaults/acpid does not work on my system.

I'm running a Debian-packaged 2.6.32-trunk-686 kernel.

All lines in my modules.dep file start with "kernel/drivers/", ie. use relative
directory names instead of absolute names.

However, the RegExp used by /etc/init.d/acpid to process this file assumes all
directory names to be absolute, which loads to an empty list of modules on my

Changing the mentioned regular expression from




(and adjusting the group number in the sed expression from \3 to \4)

fixes the bug for me.
