    Brightness keys (Fn+F7/F8) dont work.

    Recently I installed Fedora 11 on my hp laptop.The model is pavilion dv6760.
    Almost everything works except the keys to adjust the screen brightness(Fn+F7/F8).
    For now I use the powerdevil plasmoid to adjust it.But why they dont work?
    In other distros like debian,archlinux they worked like a charm.
    Is there anything I can do?

    P.S. Sorry for my english

    Hmm I just tried to see if the keys are recognized by hal.
    lshal -m

    Start monitoring devicelist:
    15:48:01.033: computer_logicaldev_input_0 condition ButtonPressed = brightness-down
    15:48:02.143: computer_logicaldev_input_0 condition ButtonPressed = brightness-up
    So they are recognized.
