Need help configuring hardware of HP655

Hello,

I am trying to configure the hardware on my fathers HP655 and seem to stuck again and again…

I have found the thread regarding the installation of the SD-Card Reader, but am not able to reproduce the installation by myself.

vlastislav@linux-k8hj:~/Stažené> rpmbuild --rebuild rts5229-1.07-2.1.src.rpm 
Instaluji: rts5229-1.07-2.1.src.rpm
varování: rts5229-1.07-2.1.src.rpm: Hlavička V3 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID d83ee527: NOKEY
chyba: line 28: Dependency tokens must begin with alpha-numeric, '_' or '/': BuildRequires:     %kernel_module_package_buildreqs

Then there is an issue with the Wifi, which I have described here. Maybe this forum is a better place to ask…

Networking using a wire works just fine, the NetworkManager of KDE does manage that flawlessly. I can config IP, Gateway and so on. Using WiFi does not work. I tried to figure out, what the problem could be and have found a thread in a german Ubuntu forum.
There seems to be a problem with the rfkill.

ifconfig wlan0 up

gives
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not possible due to RF-kill


rfkill unblock all
rfkill list

gives
0: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blockes: yes
1: hp bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blockes: yes
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blockes: yes

I tried to use the fn+F12 combination but it does not seem to have any effect on the hardware switch.
Any ideas for this?

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

Try as root:

rfkill unblock all

Go to the bios, don`t make any modification, but save and exit.
