Must've been a mistake, i have built it for 2.6.35 before without problems..

teme commented on 2010-09-02 07:03

why do you flagged this packaged when out of date? There is'n the new version? Probably don't work with last kernel?

with the modification included for GT310, brightness is now varying but as mentioned by teme not perfectly. This is for records.(GT 330M; PCI Device ID = 0x0a2b ; PCI vendor ID = 0x10de; OS : Arch 64 bit)
