Dim LCD backlight on boot

Bug #88691 reported by Richard Green on 2007-02-28
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xserver-xorg-video-ati (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xorg

Feisty Herd 4 on emachines M6810 (Radeon Mobility 9600). On boot, screen is very dark. I must use fn-F8 hotkey to raise backlight brightness in order to make screen usable.

This is both in 'liveCD mode, and after installation to HD.

Don't do that! The bug is still there in Gutsy.

I missed your request for info a month ago. I'm downloading hardy alpha 4
now, will test against that.
   I've also marked this as a duplicate of bug#12637, which appears to be
the same problem on the gateway-branded version of the same machine.
