I was thinking the same thing myself. There's a lot of different backlights out there, and acpi_video(4) obviously can't cover them all, which seems to define the de facto "standard" MIB for brightness sysctls (which upower presently uses). I hate to bikeshed, but I would humbly suggest adding an MIB hierarchy such as hw.backlight.<hw_type>.<backlight_no>.brightness (and maybe brightness_raw for advanced users who want/need more control). -- Cheers, Elizabeth _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
