Description a.r.welter 2014-07-20 10:27:20 UTC
Created attachment 919357 [details]
add manufacturer id 11 to check

Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug in usb bluetooth dongle
2. hcitool hci0 up

Actual results:
Can't init device hci0: Invalid request code (56)

Expected results:
Status of hci0 set to "UP"

Additional info:

The problem seems to be fixed with the attached patch applied to 3.15.5-200.fc20.x86_64. After booting a kernel with the patch I can successfully enable the dongle and scan for devices. hciconfig hci0 up shows the expected result.

I found this here
so I do not really know what this is about, but it works.

For some reason the check for manufacturer id 11 is not included in the current stable kernel (3.15.5-200.fc20.x86_64).

*********** MASS BUG UPDATE **************

We apologize for the inconvenience.  There is a large number of bugs to go through and several of them have gone stale.  Due to this, we are doing a mass bug update across all of the Fedora 20 kernel bugs.

Fedora 20 has now been rebased to 3.17.2-200.fc20.  Please test this kernel update (or newer) and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.

If you have moved on to Fedora 21, and are still experiencing this issue, please change the version to Fedora 21.

If you experience different issues, please open a new bug report for those.
