Description of problem:
Dell Inspiron 14 with Intel WiFi Link 5100.
If I disable and then renable the radio with the "F2" switch, I get:
Aug 12 11:40:28 palila kernel: iwlagn 0000:04:00.0: RF_KILL bit toggled to disable radio.
Aug 12 11:40:28 palila NetworkManager: <info> WiFi now disabled by radio killswitch
Aug 12 11:40:36 palila kernel: iwlagn 0000:04:00.0: RF_KILL bit toggled to enable radio.
Aug 12 11:40:38 palila NetworkManager: <info> WiFi now disabled by radio killswitch
And NM remains stuck in wireless disabled mode. I have to edit /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state to turn wireless back on.
Running KDE with knetworkmanager. After restarting NM, I need to re-enable wireless in knetworkmanager as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
When this happens and the radio does not turn back on, what is the output of:
Hmm, after a reboot I can no longer reproduce this. We'll see if it happens again.
Closing for now; please reopen if you can reproduce it. Thanks!
