Hi all,

I have a Dell XPS 13 laptop with ubuntu 9.10. Although my wireless 
always worked fine, yesterday it stopped working, presumably after a 
kernel upgrade.

I hope someone can point me towards more information based on the two 
errors below:

Error 1 found in syslog:
ubuntu NetworkManager: nm_setting_802_1x_get_pkcs11_engine_path: 
assertion `NM_IS_SETTING_802_1X (setting)' failed

Error 2 also found in syslog:
Mar 18 09:12:40 ubuntu kernel: [   22.554702] NVRM: RmInitAdapter 
failed! (0x31:0xffffffff:1039)
Mar 18 09:12:40 ubuntu kernel: [   22.554708] NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) 

both errors are unfortunately not mentioned in the common problems 
chapter of NVIDIA:

Should I just get rid of all nvidia drivers? (How?) Or are there other 
ways to solve this?

thanks in advance,

Bram Kuijper

here are the logs:
