Mandriva Linux Advisory MDKA-2007:129
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : acpid
Date : December 17, 2007
Affected: 2008.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

The acpid daemon wrote a lot of information about ACPI events in the
system logs, making harddisks too busy on laptops.

This update package suppresses these events logs in the default setup,
and enables them in debug mode only.
