Redemption: the samsung-driver patch!

Postby domjo » 17/02/2011, 17:23

The latest kernel is going to support all samsung note- and netbooks thanks to this patch:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/2/9/334

The patch is supposed to end backlight brightness issues and to fix hotkeys for all samsung note- and netbooks. But noone knows when this driver will be available to end users. At least its not in the latest ubuntu mainline natty-rc-kernel afaik.

What about applying the patch to the voria-kernel? Would the «samsung-backlight»-driver be obsolete?

Good or bad idea?

Cheers!

Sorry for answering my own post. Maybe my post was useless because the voria-kernel already uses the same driver mentioned above (samsung-backlight). Can you confirm this?

Thx, domjo
