I downloaded and compiled ppbuttonsd and the gtk addon for it, and it controls the sound great. When I tell it to change the screen brightness, it just shows it as being turned all the way down and won't change. What could be the cause of this? I have a 12" PowerBook 1.33GHz and its running gentoo 2004.3 w/ kernel 2.6.10.

Unless the rivafb is controling the framebuffer, you can't control the brightness. if you have the open firmware framebuffer in your kernel, it probably is using that instead. I'm also not sure if rivafb is working on ppc at the moment, it was broken for a while.

Good luck!
