CentOS 7 - Updates for x86_64: development/languages: acpica-tools
acpica-tools - ACPICA tools for the development and debug of ACPI tables
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
-- 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.
by Al Stone (2018-07-24):
- Added in support for NFIT subtable type 7 with an additional patch.
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.
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.
