I purchased a brand new laptop model: HP 6930p with Intel 4500MHD graphics and Intel 82801I (ICH9) HD Audio, and I installed Intrepid with the latest updates. I have the following problems:
- The buttons for controlling the brightness (Fn F9/F10) don't work. xev does not show any events for these buttons. Trying to write values into /proc/acpi/
- Upon connect/disconnect the AC power, there is a little pop-up on the screen indicating that the brightness goes up or down, but there is no change in brightness.
- If booted with AC connected, the brightness is high; if booted on battery, brightness is low. This won't change until reboot.
