Issue should be fixed in Hyperbola stable release 0.4

Might be related (see added link).

This doesn't happen if you let the Xorg server automatically decide/pick the driver/module.

To clarify: it only triggers if you manually add a device section with the driver parameter.

You don't need the backlight option to trigger the error.

Is this problem also within Hyperbola 0.4?
