[solved] Dark display after d-u
« on: 2014/04/06, 19:00:41 »

today I installed the latest Sidunction 64Bit on an older notebook. It's a Dell D830 with an Intel 965 graphic chip. After installation from usb-stick everything is fine. I can adjust brightness with Fn+Cursor (up|down). After d-u something changed. Now the display ist very dark and I can't adjust brightness anymore. I did some google search and tried the advice from to add


in the kernel parameters.

I also tried to create a xorg configuration like described in It doesn't help, too.

Any ideas how get brightness back?

P.S. More details: Fn+Cursor(up|down) still works in grub and early boot-phase (big letters in textmode). After turning into large resolution (is it kms?) the text gets darker and Fn+Cursor(up|down) doesn't work anymore.

This seems to be valid workaround for me

Code: [Select]
$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
        Driver      "intel"
        Option      "AccelMethod"     "sna"
        Option      "Backlight"       "intel_backlight" # use your backlight that works here
        BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"
