Description Kevin R. Page 2009-05-02 19:00:32 EDT
My Socket CF bluetooth card [1] isn't automatically recognised.

Adding the following line to /etc/udev/rules.d/97-bluetooth-serial.rules fixes the problem:

SUBSYSTEM=="tty", SUBSYSTEMS=="pcmcia", ATTRS{prod_id1}=="Socket", ATTRS{prod_id2}=="CF+ Personal Network Card Rev 2.5", ENV{HCIOPTS}="socket", RUN+="bluetooth_serial"

Comment 1 Kevin R. Page 2009-05-05 06:58:12 EDT
P.S. Given that the Fedora kernel still includes linux-2.6-serial-460800.patch it's likely this hardware won't work with a vanilla kernel (see bug #126403), so it's probably not worth pushing this upstream?
Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2009-05-05 09:44:57 EDT
Dave, any reason why that patch isn't upstream yet? It was committed 23 months ago, and doesn't seem to have been touched since...
Comment 3 Kevin R. Page 2009-05-05 10:57:16 EDT
I think this thread is what happened last time:

(originally a regression from 2.4; the patch is a port of the 2.4 code, I believe)
