rfkill switch hangs computer
Last modified: 2015-03-19 14:14:01 EDT
Description of problem:
If switching on wireless on a Dell XPS M1330, the system hangs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have wireless switch off
2. switch it on
computer hangs, forced shutdown needed
kernel 220.127.116.11-141.fc12.i686.PAE #1 SM
When switching on wireless in terminal mode, a long message appears starting with:
Kernel BUG at kernel/sched.c:1184!
last syst file: sys/devices/virtual/net/pppo/statistics/collisions
[lot more code not listed here]
Perhaps related to bug 586495 but I get different messages
Could you attach the messages that appear? Even a digital photo would be helpful...thanks!

Much more text flashed across the screen before this screenshot. I'd love to show you the original text messages if I would know where/if they're stored

Looks like a problem in dell-laptop?
Could be. How should I proceed: 1) remove dell-laptop to test what happens with rfkill (how can I remove it?), or 2) notify dell-laptop (which is not in fedora)?
I wonder still if this is a duplicate of bug 586495
This problem still happens after updating to 18.104.22.168-150.fc12.i686.PAE
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
This bug has gone in F14, many thanks!
