ACPI 3.11

October 02, 2008 by Eugene Gorbunoff

Why to use ACPI for eComStation? You should install ACPI for eComStation to:

Common (Notebooks, servers, barebones):
* to initialize PC (the devices are not initialized on boot without ACPI),
* to use multi-core CPU (Core Duo, AMD X2). Especially, if you want run computer in APIC mode,
* device drivers for eComStation depend on ACPI,
* ACPI provides information about the computer to drivers, applications and system information utilities.

Notebook, barebone:
* to control power management (suspend/resume/poweroff)
* to reduce power consumption

For developer:
* The main purpose of the driver is to provide ACPI interface to applied developers.
