Default Re: Linux backlight driver

Hi All,

I recently bough a Sony Vaio VPC S12C5E and installed openSuse 11.3 on it. Most of the things are working but I cant get brightness and FN keys to work. I read most of the posts in this thread and the majority relates to Ubuntu but as written before, I run suse 11.3. Below I state more info regarding my laptop:

kernel 2.6.34-12-desktop
nvidia GeForce 310M
NVIDIA Driver Version: 256.35
cat /sys/class/dmi/id/sys_vendor --> Sony Corporation
cat /sys/class/dmi/id/product_name --> VPCS12C5E
locate nvidia_bl --> /lib/modules/2.6.34-12-desktop/kernel/drivers/video/backlight/mbp_nvidia_bl.ko
/usr/src/linux-2.6.34-12/drivers/video/backlight/mbp_nvidia_bl.c


I really appreciate any help since brightness is running at max and this decrease my battery life. Thanks in advance.
