Description Kirin Yuri 2011-09-09 12:11:32 EDT
Description of problem: After update to kernel-18.104.22.168-0.fc15.i686 a backlight of my laptop Samsung N127 starts to blink after authorization in KDM. Difference between nice-working kernel-2.6.40-4.fc15.i686 and kernel-22.214.171.124-0.fc15.i686 is samsung_laptop kernel module. /var/log/messages is full off: "samsung_laptop: SABI set command 0x01 failed with completion flag 0xaa and data 0xff" Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-126.96.36.199-5.fc15.i686 kernel-188.8.131.52-0.fc15.i686 How reproducible: Every boot. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Get Samsung N127 laptop 2. Install Fedora 15 and update kernel to kernel-184.108.40.206 3. Install KDE and log into KDM. Actual results: Backlight starts to blink few times in a second. After a some time it stops, but starts again after manual brightness regulation. Expected results: Backlight not blinks.

I see exactly the same behaviour (blinking) on Samsung N130.
Comment 2 Chuck Ebbert 2011-09-14 06:05:51 EDT
The fix for this seems to have fallen into a black hole: https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/4/20/1 https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/5/11/548

Comment 4 Chuck Ebbert 2011-10-24 22:42:18 EDT
Patch from comment 2 has been applied to the f15 kernel and should be in the next update (probably 220.127.116.11).

(In reply to comment #6) > Package kernel-184.108.40.206-2.fc15 > * should fix your issue, It doesn't fix flickering problem reported in bug 747560 (on Samsung n210).
