Description Bruno Antunes 2009-05-14 20:07:34 EDT
Description of problem: Udev sets laptop LCD brightness to 50% on startup, regardless of AC power presence. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Rawhide How reproducible: Start Fedora up on a laptop, the LCD panel goes to 50% brightness upon startup. Actual results: Even with AC power connected, panel is dimmed and must be set to full brightness EVERY TIME it boots. Expected results: Check if there's AC power present, and dim the panel in case it isn't. Or just do nothing, and wait for Gnome or KDE to do it. Additional info: Laptop model is Acer Aspire 6930G. x86_64 kernel. Udev version 141-3.fc11. Kernel 18.104.22.168-140.fc11.
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2009-05-15 02:28:07 EDT
udev does not set anything related to this. This is either the kernel default, or some HAL mechanism sets it.
Comment 2 Richard Hughes 2009-05-15 04:12:34 EDT
Is it set at 50% as soon as Linux is booting, or only when gnome logs in?
Comment 3 Bruno Antunes 2009-05-15 05:07:12 EDT
As soon as it boots! I removed "quiet" from the kernel command line and it happens immediately after the udev service starts.
Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2009-05-15 05:15:05 EDT
udev might load a kernel module, which then sets the initial value

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 11:50:43 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle. Changing version to '11'. More information and reason for this action is here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 7 Scott Glaser 2009-09-09 09:45:27 EDT
Have you tried with the latest hal package in Fedora 11 or tried Rawhide? In either case, can you let us know whether the issue is still happening, and give the current version of the HAL packages you're using? -- Fedora Bugzappers volunteer triage team https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers
Comment 8 collura 2009-10-16 02:16:50 EDT
still happening seem to be using: hal-0.5.12-29.20090226git.fc11 (x86_64) hal-devel-0.5.12-29.20090226git.fc11 (x86_64) hal-info-20090414-1.fc11 (noarch) hal-libs-0.5.12-29.20090226git.fc11 (x86_64) havent tried rawhide. hmm, the wierd part is that a later version of the 'same' make/model machine doenst have the problem (same version of hal but doesnt have hal-devel installed....i havent tried removing this on broken one because dont remember why its there).
Comment 9 collura 2009-10-24 12:01:04 EDT
seems to have problems with fc12alpha x86_64 livecd ( 11.91 ) i downloaded like 10-16-09 when booting it gives me: "[drm: radeon_driver_load_kms] *ERROR* failed to initialize radeon disabling IOCTL"
Comment 10 collura 2009-12-03 19:12:52 EST
ok i still have the forgetful brightness meter problem on one machine with fc11. now a duplicate machine that had not experienced the problem with fc11 is now having the forgetfulness problem since i installed fc12 on it last week. the good news being that as of the fc12 install last week the '[drm: radeon_driver_load_kms]' error is gone. although brightness doenst work right at least have one less error message.
Comment 11 Bug Zapper 2010-04-27 10:20:09 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '11'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 12 collura 2010-04-27 12:59:34 EDT
still doesnt work. hal-0.5.13-9.fc12 (x86_64) kernel-22.214.171.124-99.fc12 (x86_64)
Comment 13 collura 2010-04-28 12:54:52 EDT
please change the version to fc12
Comment 14 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 08:33:06 EDT
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Just posting this in the hopes of getting Bugzilla off my back for this 5 year old report...
