ACPI is enabled ?

Hi to all,

How can I know if ACPI is enabled ? ( I'm running Slackware 14 ).

Thanks, see you.

If you are using a Slackware kernel, then ACPI will be used unless you specify the acpi=off kernel option, You can also check with 'dmesg | grep ACPI'.

You can also look under /proc/acpi and /sys/bus/acpi/drivers to find what is supported on your system (fan, battery, video, CPU frequency scaling etc...)
