gnome-power-manager appears to be screwing with my ability to adjust the screen brightness. Now there are only two brightness settings that work - the ones defined in gnome-power-manager settings. Using the keyboard shortcuts "works" in that I can increase the brightness one level but then the change gets overridden. Decreasing the brightness sets it at the minimum level then I can get it back without entering gpm settings. This definitely work before the last update and I think for a while after.
Is there anyway I can get it to listen to manual adjustments?
Edit: I think this was due to the latest hal update.
> lshal | grep bright laptop_panel.brightness_in_hardware = false (bool)
Adding "video" to MOD_BLACKLIST in /etc/rc.conf fixed this. This is just a kernel module right? Nothing else will be screwed...?
