Description Bill Nottingham 2008-03-18 13:23:34 EDT
Description of problem:

It appears to be needed for proper backlight support. While it has the
"acpi*:LNXVIDEO:*" alias, that doesn't seem enough to get it loaded on my
Thinkpad T60.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

kernel-2.6.25-0.121.rc5.git4.fc9.x86_64
Comment 1 Chuck Ebbert 2008-03-19 10:07:54 EDT
Dumb question... does your T60 have that device listed in its ACPI tables?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2008-03-19 11:01:05 EDT
No, nothing in /sys/bus/acpi that would match that.
Comment 3 Chuck Ebbert 2008-03-31 18:56:37 EDT
should be fixed by 5c9fcb5deef4d3a49798d76c48b726d2e3c7df72, commited upstream
