Good day to all of you guys !!!
Yesterday my laptop suffer from a bad superblock. (As I discovered later).

I fix my problem with this command:
Code:
(initramfs) fsck /dev/sdaX -y
And everything returned back to normal.
Everything except my wi fi. As you can see in the photo the output of :
Code:
inxi -Fxz
Shows that my wireless network is down.

I tried to turn it up with:
Code:
sudo ifconfig wlpls0 up
But this message was returned:
SIOCSIFFLAGS: operation not possible due to RF-kill.
Then I tried
Code:
Sudo refill list all
Which returned that my hard is blocked.
I tried to unblock with this command:
Code:
Sudo rfkill unblock all
Without results.
Any help.
