64bit and brightness

with 15 comments

Well there is a problem. I’ve installed 64bit version to another partition, dit a DSDT patch and after reboot, I’ve got kernel panic while loading new DSDT from initramfs. Ubuntu still can be loaded with noacpi option to delete patched DSDT.

So there is no solution for brightness for amd64 kernel yet. I have some thoughts about it, stay tuned.

The brightness how to updated with new warning.

UPD: Seems works for most people =) Can someone with fw11 confirm that it works or not?

UPD2: Works on 2.6.27-11.
