I like many people am very frustrated with proprietary drivers and I will use open source drivers whenever ppossible. However, I have a couple laptops with NVIDIA video cards that I try to use the "nv" driver with but I can't seem to get power management to turn off the backlight. I tried again with FC5T3 and it's still not working.
Does anyone have advice on how to get that to work so I don't have to deal with the NVIDIA closed source drivers again?
