I had run "ssh-keygen -t dsa" but got the same error again! Thanks for the reply.

@cryfilho: Is it possible that you have no ssh key locally? If so, run ssh-keygen -t dsa, and accept the default location.

@cyrofilho: Do you get the same error when running makepkg?

Every time i try to install via yaourt i get the following error:

Cloning into bare repository '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-cyrofilho/aur-mba6x_bl-dkms/mba6x_bl'...
Warning: Permanently added the RSA host key for IP address '' to the list of known hosts.
Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

I then it fails to download the git repository and asks me if i want to recompile. If i try i get the same error! What am i doing wrong?

Like I mentioned before, 98-mba6l.conf shouldn't be required anymore.

PS. Any word on when this will get merged into the kernel? I was hoping it would come into 3.14 but that has come and passed.

Sorry I haven't noticed the convo in the past few months. Summer season gets pretty hectic at work for me. Thank you for picking it up, I'll orphan.

"Note: You no longer need to specify mba6x_bl as your backlight device in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. This is now handled automatically by promoting the driver above the ACPI backlight interface."

The following file is still missing on this package:

I reported this about 4 months ago, and without it, it simply *will not* work properly.

@iamikon: Yes, the exact filename is not important.
