   Perhaps someone here is more familiar with kernel patching than I am.
Here's a web page discussing this rf kill switch issue on Dell portables:

   When I upgraded the Toshiba Satellite from 9.04 to 9.10 today I saw that
HAL has been replaced because it's been officially deprecated. However, when
the system boots a message box displays saying that HAL has not been
initiated, so something is still looking for it.

   Are there upgrades to 9.10 that I should install that might remove this
HAL issue and, perhaps, fix the rf kill switch problem if I replace the
Realtek radio with the Intel Pro?
