What OS are you using now? Is it dim? Have you looked in BIOS for brightness settings? Maybe they need to be turned up during the install. Have you made it through an install of CentOS, and if so, is the running OS dim?

Replace dimmer switch for 2007 Buick Lacrosse

Are you sure you want to do that ? Are you guessing that's the problem ? Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's are ?

DTC B2610

The body control module (BCM) applies a voltage reference through the instrument panel (I/P) dimming voltage reference circuit to the interior lamp switch. When the switch is placed to the desired position, the dimmed voltage setting is applied from the interior lamp switch through the I/P dimming return circuit to the BCM. The BCM applies the dimmed voltage to the I/P lamps supply voltage circuit.
Do you know how to do electrical testing ?
Reconnect the lamp switch assembly.
Disconnect the body control module (BCM) connector C1.
Using a DMM, measure the resistance between the I/P dimming voltage reference circuit and the I/P dimming control circuit.
Vary the I/P dimming switch from full bright to full dim.
Does the DMM, display change?

Can i install a used instrument panel in a 2001 volvo v70?

You can replace it with a junkyard one but there are issues. Best to get it repaired:-

To install/replace the D.I.M.(Drivers Instrument Module) easily. Disconnect the battery. Remove the plastic surrounding the D.I.M. by pulling it. You will then see 4 T25 screws. Remove them and carefully lift the DIM forward and out and avoid scratching the display. Disconnect the display. If the display has failed and is giving you total random readouts, it needs replaced/repaired. Getting it repaired at the dealer will be MEGA bucks.....but there is a cheap solution. There are many companies around that will repair if for you for a fraction of the cost without the aggro of mileage correction issues. (see eBay)Alternatively, reflow the Motorola chip on the circuit board yourself if you know how to. When repaired and refitted, re-connect the battery with the ignition switch in position 2.

On linux centos it doesn work

The CT4170 SoundBlaster "Vibra" cards are old 16-bit ISA PnP cards, and were not detected at install by Linux kernels 2.16.15-27. You need to get the "isapnptools" package from the Fedora or CentOS sites, and do the following:
2. Install isapnptools using dpkg -i path-to-downloaded file .
3. Create and edit file /etc/isapnp.conf and put the following contents in it:
(READPORT 0x0273)
(INT 0 (IRQ 5 (MODE +E)))
(IO 0 (SIZE 16) (BASE 0x0240))
(IO 1 (SIZE 2) (BASE 0x0300))
(IO 2 (SIZE 4) (BASE 0x0388))
(NAME "CTL00f4/-1[0]{Audio }")
4. Run "isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf". If it reports errors, you must change configuration above (it is suited to my setup). Try "pnpdump -c" and put its output in /etc/isapnp.conf file. If it does not help, you must find the correct configuration manually, for example change port to 0x220. For full list of possible values run pnpdump. Note that if you change the configuration, you must change options for modprobe below.
5. Create and edit file /etc/modprobe.d/sbvibra and put the following options in it:
alias snd-card-0 snd_sb16
options snd_sb16 port=0x240 irq=5 dma8=0 dma16=1 isapnp=0
6. Run "update-modules"
7. Run "modprobe snd-card-0". If it works OK (check if "ls -l /dev/dsp" shows that file is present), perform the steps below to make setup permanent:
8. Append following line to /etc/modules:
8. Go to system configuration (in GUI) and choose "Services". Enable "isapnp" service and tick option to start it at boot.
Hope this helps :)
