Description Julian Sikorski 2008-01-04 06:45:03 EST
Description of problem: In the current situation, sliding the brightness bar in gnome-power-manager causes a lot of screen flickering, since it goes to 100 % for invalid values. Upstream bug report contains a working fix, which applies cleanly against kernel-2.6.24-0.133.rc6.git8.fc9. It would be nice if the fix could be backported to F8 kernel as well.

Adding ACPI metadata.
Comment 2 Julian Sikorski 2008-01-09 07:39:12 EST
Patch has now been merged to acpi test branch.
Comment 3 Chuck Ebbert 2008-01-09 14:36:33 EST
Created attachment 291191 [details] the patch in question, in case someone wants to test
Comment 4 Julian Sikorski 2008-01-12 04:35:15 EST
So, are there any chances this patch hits Fedora kernel before it gets merged upstream?
Comment 5 Julian Sikorski 2008-01-12 04:42:47 EST
CCing upstream submitter.
Comment 6 Danny Baumann 2008-01-12 07:26:47 EST
The patch in comment #3 works fine for me, and I'd also appreciate it being merged to the Fedora kernels. g-p-m backlight management is just unusable as it is now for ACPI video driver users.
Comment 7 Julian Sikorski 2008-02-02 11:03:11 EST
The patch has been updated, new one is even better. It would be very cool if this patch could be applied to Fedora kernel along with the one mentioned in kernel bug #9614. These two greatly improve the backlight experience.
Comment 8 Chuck Ebbert 2008-02-05 19:50:08 EST
Fixed in 126.96.36.199-132
Comment 9 Julian Sikorski 2008-02-06 04:27:46 EST
The backlight issues are fixed, thank you. Not sure if this bug should be closed, or stay open until the fixed kernel hits the repositories.
