Packaging Notes for Fedora
The upstream source contains documentation that may or may not be licensed
in a freely redistributable manner. In an excess of caution, the manuals in
question have been removed from the source we start with. You can still get
your own copies of the documentation from here:
The two manuals affected are:
(1) ACPICA Reference Manual, describing the ACPI Component Architecture
in some detail, and
(2) ASL Compiler Reference Manual, describing how to use iasl
While there are man pages for the commands, they are very brief. The
documents above are recommended reading.
The aapits tests do not currently build properly. They will be added to
this package once they do. In the meantime, ASL, template and misc tests
will be run as part of %check.
