Oh, I thought the acpid is used for monitor/display driver detection.

Then, can we break up the following dependency somewhere, so that
grml-etc/grml-x etc can be successfully installed/configured under 
VMware plz? Maybe grml-autoconfig suggests (not depends on) acpid/apmd? 

The problem is the acpid...
As the consequence:

 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of grml-autoconfig:
  grml-autoconfig depends on acpid | apmd; however:
   Package acpid is not configured yet.
   Package apmd is not installed.
 dpkg: error processing grml-autoconfig (--configure):
  dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of grml-etc:
  grml-etc depends on grml-autoconfig; however:
   Package grml-autoconfig is not configured yet.
 dpkg: error processing grml-etc (--configure):
 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of grml-x:
  grml-x depends on grml-etc (>= 0.5-20); however:
   Package grml-etc is not configured yet.
