[SOLVED] Power button

Hello,

after migration from bullseye to chimaera the power button stoped working - in terms of 'does not initiate system shut down'.

The usual suspect would be a *smart* deskop power manger, but there is no X. It is a headless mini-server on older Fujitsu hardware (consisting of AMD notebook components, fanless).
What can it be? A missing or unconfigured package through the update, acpi stuff, ...

Thanks in advance and regards.

Re: [SOLVED] Power button

I had similar things when I moved to Arch on my netbook, I know they're different devices but try acpid

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Power_ … CPI_events
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Acpid

acpid handles things like what happens when the power button is pressed. Afaik it is independent of systemd. I haven't tried it on this system yet.

Disclaimer: If I give you any technical advice, always double check it, because even though I used GNU/Linux many years, I'm still learning, just like you. I try to help, but I could be wrong! Empower yourself!

Then acpid it is.
Thanks for clarifying the matter.
EDIT: It's working - solved.
