Description Pam Huntley 2003-01-14 21:26:14 UTC
Description of problem:
Bluetooth utilities (from bluez stack), like hciconfig and l2ping, are not
included (I did a Personal install).  Please include these utilities, as they
are neccessary for getting bluetooth devices up and running.


Thank you.

Just a confirmation -- the kernel in the latest beta includes recent Bluetooth
support, and with the userland RPMs from sourceforge everything seems to work fine. 

I've tried sending and receiving objects with OBEX (this required installing
openobex and openobex-apps too, with one or two bug fixes required), and
dialling up with RFCOMM. I reported (in private) flow control problems with
RFCOMM, but having taken that upstream it turns out to be a fundamental problem
with my mobile phone, not a Linux bug.

Some bluetooth stuff is in rawhide.
