Description Bastien Nocera 2004-06-15 13:02:35 UTC
/dev/pmu is used on Apple laptops to give control of the framebuffer
This patch is necessary for the gnome-settings-daemon (part of the
gnome-control-center) to be able to change the backlight level with
the brightness keys.

This bug is in Fedora Core 3 Test 1.

Patch from attachment in comment #1 works, verified several times on
several PPC boxes. Please integrate for FC3test2 (freeze date is
dangerously close)

Comment 5 Warren Togami 2004-08-31 03:02:03 UTC
Should be into rawhide tomorrow.

I just confirmed that this is fixed when using pam 0.77-56 on my iBook.
