Re: Backlight doesn't work with latest Maverick kernel

Yes, it works on my NF310. Try to uninstall samsung-tools (it has an dependency on an old version of easy-slow-down-manager) and install the new easy-slow-down-manager.

Re: Backlight doesn't work with latest Maverick kernel

The presence of the "acpi_video0" directory is a strong indication of the ACPI driver problem solved by the fix mentioned above. After adding "acpi_backlight=vendor" to your kernel's paramter list it must not (well, it should not) exist. You might want to check if applying the parameter was successf...
