Re: Exclude some architectures from an architecture-independent package ?

Thanks for this suggestion. It's the one I favor most over the others,
as if a new arch with ACPI support appears, it won't be necessary to add
it to debian/control. It's future-proof :)

For those interested, I added a simple test at the end of the DKMS
config file:

# Don't build module when ACPI is disabled
if ! grep -q "^CONFIG_ACPI=[ym]$" "$kernel_source_dir/.config" 2>/dev/null ; then
  echo "ACPI disabled in this kernel, not building module." >&2

This does the trick.

Thanks to all of you for your help !
