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

RHEL-6 uses acpid version 1, which makes use of the kernel /proc/acpi/event interface. However, as of linux-3.12, the /proc/acpi/event interface was removed in favour of usage of the kernel input layer. Because of that change, acpid version 1 fails to operate with kernel-lt and kernel-ml.

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