New to Arch (and somewhat new to linux).
Having a problem on my laptop after a fresh install.
I can't get it to power down after a "shutdown -h now" command.
I've gotten acpid installed and in rc.conf. It gives the error "can't open /proc/acpi/event no such file or directory"
I've put acpi=on in my grub boot (just after root string and just befor ro)
Can anyone help? I've RTFM and am not getting anywhere
Oh, if I can get apm to work I'd be just as happy as that's what worked in Debian Sarge
Figured out the problem....
dmesg | egrep ("acpi") told me this....
bios from 99, use acpi=force
So I guess for older machines, forcing acpi is the key.
I never could get apm working tho...
