Last modified: 2012-04-03 14:00:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Bluetooth on an ASUS UX31E (tested) refuses to discover devices during pairing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot fedora 16 with patches to linux-3.3.0-4.fc16.x86_64 into gnome-3
2. choose "set up a new device..." from the bluetooth menu > continue to device search
3. push the "pairing" button on your keyboard
4. be disappointed when your keyboard (in my case, a microsoft bluetooth keyboard 6000) doesn't show up
no pairing. no keyboard. no love.
keyboard discovery and typing glory.
Patch at http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.bluez.kernel/18801
applied in Ubunutu https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AsusZenbook
as of 2012-03-22.
I confirm the patch works in Fedora 3.3.0-4 kernel as well.
Patch is in linux-next (the web says) but not in 3.3.0.

kernel spec patch to apply patch from gmane.linux.bluez.kernel
Created attachment 574119 [details]
kernel patch from http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.bluez.kernel/18830
(filename says linux-2.6, but that's wrong; should be linux-3.3)
This patch is in 3.3.1, so no need for my patch if (/when) you roll forward.
All branches are on 3.3.1 or newer now. This should be fixed per comment #3.
