Re: Natty Backlight problems update
UPDATE: On a whim I decided to try a distribution upgrade to 11.04 from a fresh install of 10.10. The short of it is, same problem. HOWEVER! (This is where it gets interesting) I accessed the grub boot menu after, and found "Previous Versions" I ran the 2.6.35 kernel and BEHOLD! Backlight AND Unity! For all intents and purposes 11.04 is running, but with the older kernel from 10.10 I think this proves that the bug is in the kernel.
Other than that, everything is working great! I am continuing my work on this however. My next step is to get the latest stable kernel from kernel.org and install it. I also intend to re-compile the stock kernel that comes with Natty and see what happens.
I will continue my work, and keep the community/forums informed of my progress.
