Hi All,

I am new to ACPI development. I have downloaded the UNIX Format Source Code and Build Environment of the ACPI
and successfully compiled it. I am facing problem in UNIX Format Test Suite installation as i am getting following compilation errors.
After looking into Make file i am still unable to figure what is the reason of the error.
Please if some one can tell me what is going wrong here?

I want to use the ACPI library for writing a small application for power management and display.
My understanding is that in through test code i can understand the sequence for API call and
their functionality. I have gone through the Programmer reference for API functionality but
not sure if there is any specific sequence to call them. I am using Intel dual core and Ubuntu platform.
I have enabled the BIOS settings for ACPI and i am able to run some of applications to see the power
state of the CPU...


Thanks and Regards,
Nisha
