Description Bastien Nocera 2004-06-15 09:02:35 EDT
/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.

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

Should be into rawhide tomorrow.
