Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 495804
Last modified: 2009-04-16 10:45:30 EDT
With the newest gnome-bluetooth packages in rawhide, bluetooth shows up as disabled and cannot be enabled. Older versions (2.27.0 at least) worked fine.

hciconfig hci0 up
We don't show the "Powered" property anymore, and I don't intend on adding it back.
Hmm too bad. But you are right, manually "hciconfig hci0 up"-ing made it work fine again.
bluetoothd is supposed to put the radio up when starting up, or when you insert the dongle (after bluetoothd was started).
That is, as long as InitiallyPowered is true in /etc/bluetooth/main.conf
If you ended up in a case where the adapter wasn't powered up properly, get the output of "bluetoothd -n -d" when you reproduce the problem. Closing as NOTABUG in the meanwhile.
