Project Summary

The goal of this project is to enable Linux to take advantage of platforms that support ACPI (Advanced Configuration & Power Interface).

ACPI is an abstraction layer between the OS and platform firmware and hardware. This abstraction allows the OS and the platform to evolve independently. The latest ACPI specification is published on http://www.acpi.info.

The core of the Linux ACPI implementation comes from ACPICA (ACPI Component Architecture). ACPICA includes an ACPI Machine Language (AML) interpreter that is resident in the Linux kernel.

In the early days of Linux ACPI, DSDT modifications were common to work around both BIOS bugs and Linux bugs. Thus, the DSDT database at the old http://acpi.sourceforge.net web site is now largely a historical artifact.
