I have written a small daemon, which can replace acpid on VDR systems and was
written with dedicated VDR systems in mind.
- Faster than acpid with all the required external scripts.
- Emergency reboot feature. You don't loose the power button as safe emergency
exit button. Just press it four times within three seconds and a clean reboot
- Very easy to set up. If you want, you can just copy the "vdrpbd" file to your
VDR system and execute it. VDR should react to the power button immediately!
- Systemd integration. If systemd is detected, then vdrpbd tries to register
itself as "power button inhibitor". The module "Net::DBus" is required for
this to work.
Note that it requires an up-to-date kernel, as the only supported way, to access
the power button, is the input layer. There is no "netlink" support and I also
won't add it.
