    Hi all:

    In handbook 11.15.3:
    In the default kernel configuration file:
    Why add "acpi" into the defaul kernel setting and also not recommended this?

    I commented out this line in my /etc/make.conf "NO_MODULES=true" and recompiled the kernel and installed it.
    Seems no any thing is loaded except the kernel.
    Seems "acpi" in the kernel is mot complete?

    Unless I'm mistaken device acpi is NOT part of i386 GENERIC. That line should read device eisa.
    It's only in GENERIC on amd64. IIRC on amd64 it is mandatory.

    I don't remember that I have edited "GENERIC", but not sure.
