Hi All,

I keep seeing the following error in /var/log/messages appearing quite a
few times!

Jul  6 01:19:12 Xymnotune NetworkManager: <info>  Error getting
killswitch power: org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.KillSwitch.NotSupported -
Access type not supported

and this message keeps repeating itself. Any ideas why this is happening
and how do I prevent it from happening?

System Info:
Dell D810 - Intel pro wireless 2200


Rogue --

NM will automatically poll any killswitch that it finds every 5 seconds or so, that is why your error keeps occurring. I'll look into this error and have a fix (possibly a patch) by tomorrow.

Hi Benjamin,

That would be great! I am not sure if this is related, but the last time
my system froze randomly, I did a hardboot and got in as single so that
the logs were still pristine, and the only error messages I saw was
this. Now I know it might be ridiculous to make such a statement, none
the less I am trying to eliminate possibilities.

Looking forward for your patch.
