After setting brightness to 0, it won't increase any more and my only option is a reboot.

Is anyone else having this same issue? I'm on 4.2.3, on a 2013 MBA.

@freeaks, that kernel message is normal as in it doesn't cause faulty behavior afaik. Also, your issue about screen staying off is not seen with my mba. Create a thread in the forums and provide what is being used to sleep your screen when inactive (dpms? what syntax are you using?).

If you strongly feel this is an issue with the module, you are free to report bugs upstream. Please try to keep this comment section strictly for building the package, which is its only function.

i could install the module, and it kind of works, now when coming back from hibernation/suspend, i can modify brighness again. that's for the good point.
now i have another problem though, when the macbookair put the screen to sleep after a pariod of inactivity, the screen gets powered off and there's no way to power it back on. i'm forced to do a hard reset.
i can see in the logs:
# zagnut kernel: mba6x_bl: Invalid response at reg: 0x1 (len: 24)

how come it works when going to suspended mode with:
# systemctl suspend

when i come back i can wakeup the macbookair, i can set the brightness and everything work as normal, but on the other hand, when the macbookair put the screen to sleep for inactivity, the screen gets powered off and there's no way to get it back on.

It seems many are unable to install this package. Hob, please take a look at the error

This started happening since the new pkgbuild so I stopped using this package and just ran my own pkgbuild. I needed to scrap my arch to try out yosemite and came back to try installing this but no go. Looks like others are hitting the same wall. Thanks!
