How to install acpid on apalis imx6 image

Hi i want to install acpid on the image of apalis imx6 and edit the daemon as per our requirements?
Is it possible to do?

ACPI is mainly an x86 thing and not really applicable form ARM. What exactly is it that you are trying to achieve?

Hi marcel,

I have a main application running on apalis imx6. when a shutdown button is pressed on the main application. the main application should be able to communicate the kernel that shutdown process has started. and all the applications depending on the main application should be closed first and then total shutdown should happen. this is the requirement.

Have a look at the following article on our developer website.
