Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432918
brightness control is horked
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:54:43 EST
I often see the brightness go spontaneously down, and when I manually make it
bright again, it goes straight back.
Actually, the spontaneous darkening is gone, nowadays.
Instead, the brighness applet tells me:
DEBUG: ERROR: Dim capable hardware not present
WARNING: GetBrightness failed!
and shows me the red stop sign...
Todays hal update fixed this.
