• Help with acpid.


    Trying to get suspend and stuff to work on my laptop. /var/run/acpid.socket is in use, and i was wondering how i could go about finding out exactly whats using it.

    acpid --d -l   
    ⏎  
    Deprecated /proc/acpi/event was not found. Trying netlink and the input layer...  
    acpid: cannot open input layer  
    inotify fd: 4  
    inotify wd: 1  
    netlink opened successfully  
    acpid: can't open socket /var/run/acpid.socket: Address already in use  
    
    

    edit: Could it be where i installed a full DE (cinnamon) and perhaps the application that handles these events for it is still installed and enabled? I removed cinnamon and most gnome dependencies and installed openbox.

  • You can find what’s using this file by doing sth like this:

    fuser /var/run/acpid.socket
    

    You will see one or maybe bunch of pid numbers (programs that are using this particular file). Next step will show you their real names:

    ps aux| grep pidnumber\_for\_previous\_step
    
  • Thank you. This is what i get when i run the first cmd.

    sudo fuser /var/run/acpid.socket ⏎  
    [sudo] password for james:   
    /run/acpid.socket: 1 261  
    
    

    I assumed the pid was the second number, so i did this:

    ps aux| grep 261  
    root 261 0.0 0.0 4240 844 ? Ss 12:26 0:00 /usr/bin/acpid -f  
    james 679 0.0 0.0 10672 1092 pts/0 S+ 12:27 0:00 grep 261
    
    root 261 0.0 0.0 4240 844 ? Ss 12:26 0:00 /usr/bin/acpid -f
    

    So acpid is the process using the socket?

  • IMHO the answer is “yes”. Find out if [i:318muoz2]acpid.socket[/i:318muoz2] disappear when you stop acpi service daemon:

    systemctl stop acpid
    
  • edit: ok i think i got it now, thanks for getting me this far, hopfully suspend will work if not im further now and should be able to figure it out.

  • Ok - no problem. Good luck

    I have, today actually, i’ll be going through it again until i can figure this out.

  • I haven’t had but one acpi/bios issue with my system with arch. That is the display brightness keys don’t work. I can adjust backlight using an applet or shell command and even assign a script to any other two buttons on the keyboard…just not the ones labeled for the task GRRRRR…The only distro that the keys work without fail is Ubuntu, and I cannot for the life of me figure out what kernel module is responsible. But bringing this back on topic (sorry lol)…compared to most I think our system is above average for acpi/bios compatibility

  • Since Dustin mentioned kernel modules, it may be a good idea for you both to install and try ‘linux-mainline’ from the AUR and test this situation on it.

    You can also download a binary from here [url:cxyj6rdd]http://arch.miffe.org/[/url:cxyj6rdd] if interested.

    You can also add this to your ‘pacman.conf’ to keep it up to date if you wish.

      
    \# Prebuilt Kernel and others  
    SigLevel = Optional TrustAll  
    Server = http://arch.miffe.org/$arch  
    
    

    May God guide your thoughts and your actions to help you.

  • I am not certain but I think I tried that kernel already. I tried so many things its hard to remember though lol. I did see the kernel Dell installs on their linux XPS laptop is in the AUR, I may give them both a go

    I got everything working now, im going to test the mainline kernel as well, since you posted a link to binary.

  • Mark topic as [b:2nwxijx7][SOLVED][/b:2nwxijx7] and describe what have you done. Maybe this will come in handy to someone else.
