Acpid is a daemon that dispatches ACPI events to user-space programs.

RHEL-5 and RHEL-6 uses acpid version 1 which makes use of /proc/acpi/event. However in linux-3.12 /proc/acpi/event was removed and acpid was updated to version 2. Because of this, ACPI fails to operate with kernel-ml.

This updated acpid package provides version 2 for users of kernel-ml. It is available from the elrepo-extras repository as it overwrites the distribution provided package.
