Thread: Unable to toggle wireless device! open Suse 11.4

  1. #1

    Default Unable to toggle wireless device! open Suse 11.4

    I finally installed openSUSE along side ubuntu and xp in my ThinkPad EDGE
    Now I am facing issue with toggling the wi-fi, I had no such problem in ubuntu.
    Seems like there is some issue in the thinkpad-acpi module.

    I use fn+F9 to toggle the wifi, which toggles both bluetooh and wifi, but on openSUSE it only toggles bluetooth.

    acpi_listen in ubuntu gives me the below result when I press fn+F9
    ibm/hotkey HKEY 00000080 00001005

    but in openSUSE its blank but bluetooth gets toggled.

    dmesg from ubuntu:

    Code:

    I tried installin ralink-firmware as specified in Network Manager not detecting wireless device! open Suse 11.3, but that did not help

    What kernel version is the Ubuntu running?

    Are you running the standard kernel for 11.4?

    What does '/usr/sbin/rfkill list' show? You will likely need to install rfkill
    with 'sudo zypper in rfkill' first (with network connection).

    Thanks for looking into this.

    kernel and rfkill information

    finally got the wireless setup.

    Followed the instruction from Realtek RTL8191/8192SE WiFi Drivers.

    Thanks a lot .
