Description of problem:

Fedora 7 work fine

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Alexey Kuznetsov 2007-11-08 06:24:07 EST
Hardware: Macbook Pro.
Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2007-11-08 07:27:44 EST
Edit /etc/sysconfig/bluetooth and make sure it says 'HID2HCI_ENABLE=true'.
That'll fix it on subsequent reboots. For now, just run '/sbin/hid2hci' as root.

There were issues with automatically taking devices out of HID mode (where they
magically connect to keyboards and mice). So we turned that off by default. Lack
of bluetooth is considered to be a less problematic failure mode than lack of
keyboard and mouse.

Please reopen if this isn't the problem.

Not fixing it for me on my Thinkpad T60.  Worked fine in F7.
Comment 4 Joey Boggs 2007-12-11 19:56:27 EST
chris, here's a workaround for the t60

echo "enable" > /proc/acpi/ibm/bluetooth

The adapter doesn't get turned on for some reason, and the thinkpad key for BT
is ignored

That's a kernel problem. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=384111
