So I finaly retired my very old notebook (hey, it had a 1024x768 display, a=
the cpu was good enough for NetBSD) - and got a brand new one.
The old one did not support ACPI at all (yes, *that* old), so I never realy
followed ACPI related discussions here.
Now to the point: I will have some (a lot?) free NetBSD hacking time,
unfortunately combined with no direct access to sparc64 hardware, so I won't
work much on my usual TODO list.
Is there any vision of the direction NetBSD needs to grow ACPI support?
- have powerd(8) shutdown the system when running out of battery
- have a kernel thread controlling fan rotations and a userland=20
utility to set temperature parameters and corelate sensors with fans
- manually or automatically (interface that go up/down?) power on/off
devices, i.e. an unused wavelan card
Did anyone make a grand plan yet?
