Description of problem:
Comment 4 of bug 583319 shows the extreme case of darkness on a radeon
RV280 I have in one system. That was the first where I noticed this, but
now, I see the latest drivers on my RV410 have brought a distinct dimness
that did not exist on fedora 13 running the same hardware. My desktop
at work, with an RV610 still seems to retain the original briteness I
previously used to see on all the different radeon cards.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run "neverputt" compare the screens from different card displays.
too dim on some cards
Same on all cards
I'll attach a couple of screenshots taken on different systems.

Xorg.0.log X log file
This is the requested X log file from the RV410 system (the dim one).
I don't have an xorg.conf file on this system, I'm using all defaults.

The dmesg command output from the same system.
Created attachment 470429 [details]
The /var/log/messages from the same system.
If you are interested, I can get these same files for the system mentioned in
bug 583319 (the RV280), but to get the files from my desktop at work (which
still has the nice bright image) will have to wait till January when I go
back to work again.
Possibly relevant tidbit: The system at work only has the 1 DVI output (I
think), where the two dim systems have S-video outputs (but they aren't
connected to anything).
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
