I’m running a Dell Latitude E6400 with OpenSUSE 11.2, and for some reason the rfkill is disabling my Internet. In the NetworkManager log I find this:
killswitch_getpower_reply(): Error getting killswitch power: /usr/lib/hal/scripts/linux/hal-system-killswitch-get-power-linux: line 61: /usr/sbin/dellWirelessCtl: is a directory #012 org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.KillSwitch.NotSupported.
But I’m not sure what this means, can anyone help?
Well it seems that for some reason my networkmanager deleted that folder, so that might be a problem.
IIs there any way I can re-download dellWirelessCtl or something?
Is rfkill installed, if not install and post the output from;

Um, well I can’t actually download it since the internet is down, and this is on another computer.
And I don’t think rfkill is installed because i cant use rfkill unblock all.

What error message?
You can install rfkill by downloading the rpm file from the repo (browse to it
with Firefox), copy it to a USB stick, and use the rpm command to install it.
I cant find it. Where is it?

No. I just read the whole thread. As 11.2 maintenance is discontinued, the repos
You should probably consider updating to 11.4.
