Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 734369
Bluetooth not working on Atheros combo-card AR9285
Last modified: 2011-09-19 08:16:33 EDT
Description of problem:
The Atheros AR9285 combo-card contains both a WLAN part and a Bluetooth part.
The WLAN part works out of the box without problem. The bluetooth device does not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Actual kernel installed: 3.1.0-0.rc3.git0.0.fc16.i686
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F16 Alpha
2. Update to latest state (Kernel 3.1.0-0.rc3.git0.0.fc16.i686)
3. See the BT is not started and can not be activated.
Can not search or activate Bluetooth in Bluetooth settings
Activate and work with bluetooth as normal.
Same result with F15 and previous F16-kernels.
After last update as of today, the situation has improved a lot!
I am able to activate bluetooth, search for other BT units and set them up.
However, filetransfer is still buggy. Sometimes I am able to send a file, and sometimes not.
Mayhap this is a separate bug.
I will close this one and report a new bug with the help of ABRT.
Probably that way is more informative.
