Comment 36 for bug 61184

The patch above (Svenny said on 2007-04-14:) did work for R60e with Fiesty (Fiesty had code in /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-laptop-panel-mgmt-policy.fdi for Lenovo X, T and Z series but nothing for R)
But a few days ago there was an update to hal which changed /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-laptop-panel-mgmt-policy.fdi and removed the
<device>
    <match key="info.category" string="laptop_panel">
      <match key="/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer:smbios.system.manufacturer" string="LENOVO">
...
code completely. I am not sure if the changed hal now tries to fix this problem elsewhere, in which case model R had been overlooked again, or if the whole Lenovo laptop fix which was in the original Fiesty release has been dropped with the updated version.

Reapplying the patch works.
