Re: Linux backlight driver
hi guys! reading about this module gave me hopes for getting backlight control in ubuntu for my macbook pro 15".
i compile the driver, load it successfully
echo 7 > /sys/devices/virtual/backlight/nvidia_backlight/brightness
i have these two cards in my ubunu 10.04 laptop
mamo@xerxes:~$ lspci |grep -i vga
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G96 [GeForce 9600M GT] (rev a1)
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C79 [GeForce 9400M] (rev b1)
the one connected to my panel is the the 9400M one.
I figured that maybe the second card interferes somehow , so i commented away the vendor string for the 9600M card in the sources, but still no difference.
