It was called ibm-acpi until a few weeks ago, then it
changed for F7 too.
The path also changed and that causes a problem because
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit doesn't load the module.

The new path is:


But the loading script does this:

  # Initialize ACPI bits
  if [ -d /proc/acpi ]; then
      for module in /lib/modules/$unamer/kernel/drivers/acpi/* ; do
          modprobe $module >/dev/null 2>&1

I noticed because some gkrellm temperature readings (gkibm-acpi) are
unavailable without the module.

Best regards.
