Description François Kooman 2010-05-11 18:35:25 UTC
Description of problem:

Dimming the display on MacBook Pro 13" 5,5 works perfectly before suspend. With the buttons (f1,f2) and automatically when unplugging power cable. Using stock F13 rawhide as of today (Tue May 11 18:31:43 UTC 2010). I'm using the nouveau driver.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to modify the display brightness with buttons and by unplugging power cord and reattaching again
2. see the dimming work
3. suspend the system by closing the lid
4. resume the system by opening the lid
5. try to modify the brightness again (either buttons or unplugging cord)

Actual results:

No more dimming.

Expected results:


Additional info:

Gnome does detect the display dimming key presses (f1,f2) and shows the "progress" bar indicating the dimming of the display but the display doesn't actually get dimmed.

How can I better debug this? Let me know if you need me to do anything to get more information.

Smells like a kernel problem, no?

Comment 2 Kevin Fenzi 2010-07-03 18:57:40 UTC
Could well be. Moving it over to the nouveau component for further debugging.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2010-07-30 11:36:20 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
