acpica-tools - ACPICA tools for the development and debug of ACPI tables

License: GPLv2
Vendor: CentOS
The ACPI Component Architecture (ACPICA) project provides an OS-independent
reference implementation of the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface
Specification (ACPI).  ACPICA code contains those portions of ACPI meant to
be directly integrated into the host OS as a kernel-resident subsystem, and
a small set of tools to assist in developing and debugging ACPI tables.

This package contains only the user-space tools needed for ACPI table
development, not the kernel implementation of ACPI.  The following commands
are installed:
   -- iasl: compiles ASL (ACPI Source Language) into AML (ACPI Machine
      Language), suitable for inclusion as a DSDT in system firmware.
      It also can disassemble AML, for debugging purposes.
   -- acpibin: performs basic operations on binary AML files (e.g.,
      comparison, data extraction)
   -- acpidump: write out the current contents of ACPI tables
   -- acpiexec: simulate AML execution in order to debug method definitions
   -- acpihelp: display help messages describing ASL keywords and op-codes
   -- acpinames: display complete ACPI name space from input AML
   -- acpisrc: manipulate the ACPICA source tree and format source files
      for specific environments
   -- acpixtract: extract binary ACPI tables from acpidump output (see
      also the pmtools package)

This version of the tools is being released under GPLv2 license.

acpica-tools-20160527-1.el7.x86_64 [842 KiB] Changelog by Dean Nelson (2016-06-14):
- Update to the latest upstream version of acpica as requested by RHBZ 1278038.
- Refresh existing patches and add/delete ones to enable a clean build.
acpica-tools-20150619-3.el7.x86_64 [813 KiB] Changelog by Dean Nelson (2015-07-15):
- Remove acpitests-unix-20150619 directory from the build because it was a
  mistake that it was present and it complicated the fixing of the file
  permissions done related to RHBZ 1211328's requested rebase.
