Description vadi01 2010-05-08 11:36:42 UTC
Created attachment 412515 [details] Output of lscpi -vvnn Description of problem: Brightness control levels cannot be adjusted. Only 2 variants exist when i try to increase or decrease brightness: Completely dark (decrease) and completely bright(increase). The brightness level it too high for the eye to handle. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.16-3.20100305git6b8b157.fc13.i686 How reproducible: When pressing the fn+increase(home)/decrease(end) brightness keys Steps to Reproduce: 1.same as above 2. 3. Actual results: Brigtness does not adjust expected levels Expected results: See description Additional info: attached logs of lscpi and xorg

I downloaded and installed the rc2 spin and same issue exists. As i think think its too late too fix this before the f13 official released i suppose the fix might be in updates.

I keep tracking update every day but till now at least, it is still unsolved. luckly i did not abandon win7 on my laptop and now i can use dual boot back to win7. hope it can be solve soon.

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Z360 with Fedora 14. I've installed F15 beta and the problem with brightness always stays up. I decided to give Win7 but have to return to MS since it is impossible to work with brightness always 100%. $ lspci | grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 18) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT218 [GeForce 310M] (rev a2) Output of $ lspci -vvnn: 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0046] (rev 18) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: Lenovo Device [17aa:3920] Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx+ Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=fast >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx- Latency: 0 Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 45 Region 0: Memory at f0000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M] Region 2: Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M] Region 4: I/O ports at 1800 [size=8] Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel driver in use: i915 Kernel modules: i915 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : nVidia Corporation GT218 [GeForce 310M] [10de:0a70] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: Lenovo Device [17aa:3968] Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR+ FastB2B- DisINTx- Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=fast >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx- Latency: 0, Cache Line Size: 64 bytes Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 16 Region 0: Memory at ac000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M] Region 1: Memory at b0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M] Region 3: Memory at ae000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=32M] Region 5: I/O ports at 2000 [size=128] Expansion ROM at ad000000 [disabled] [size=512K] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel driver in use: nouveau Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidiafb
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2011-06-02 14:21:02 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 13. 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 '13'. 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 13'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 13 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 6 Bug Zapper 2011-06-27 16:10:55 UTC
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 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.
