Dependencies

Runtime

Non-Multilib

Compile the package:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --docdir=/usr/share/doc/pm-utils-1.2.3 &&
make

Install the package:

make install

Multilib

This package does not provide any libraries so only one installation is required.

--prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
--docdir=/usr/share/doc/pm-utils-1.2.3 &&
make


Install the package:

make install

N32

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILDN32}" ./configure --libdir=/usr/lib32 \
--prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
--docdir=/usr/share/doc/pm-utils-1.2.3 &&
make

make install

64Bit

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" ./configure --libdir=/usr/lib64 \

Configuring

Config files

Configuration files should be put in /etc/pm/config.d. See the pm-action(8) man page for more information.

Hooks

Hooks are run when the system is put into a sleep state or resumed. Default hooks are located in /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d, and user hooks should be put in /etc/pm/sleep.d. See the pm-action(8) man page for more information.

Short Descriptions

on_ac_power is a script that determines whether the system is running on AC power (rather than a battery).
pm-hibernate is a symlink to pm-action that puts the computer into hibernate mode (i.e., saves the contents of memory to disk and shuts down).
pm-is-supported is a script that checks whether power management features such as suspend and hibernate are supported.
pm-powersave is a script that puts the computer into powersaving (low power) mode.
pm-suspend is a symlink to pm-action that puts the computer into suspend mode.
pm-suspend-hybrid is a symlink to pm-action that puts the computer into suspend mode (like hibernate, but resumes more quickly).
pm-action is a script that puts the computer into a sleep state (hibernate, suspend, or suspend-hybrid).
pm-pmu is a program that puts computers which have a Macintosh PMU into suspend mode.
pm-reset-swap is a program that marks a swap partition unusable for resuming from hibernate.
