Description James Clark 2003-04-14 11:41:58 UTC
/usr/bin/rfcomm and the rfcomm kernel module need /dev/rfcomm[01] to be useful,
but these don't get created automatically.  They are supposed to look like this:

crw-r--r--    1 root     root     216,   0 Apr 12 08:52 /dev/rfcomm0
crw-r--r--    1 root     root     216,   1 Apr 12 08:52 /dev/rfcomm1

Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2003-08-26 23:57:14 UTC
This patch is necessary for the bluetooth packages to operate properly, please

Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2003-10-21 22:04:53 UTC
Reassigning to Fedora Core

Comment 5 Jukka Ketelaars 2004-06-01 08:39:15 UTC
These are still not created in FC2 final. Also, I think bug 101075 is 
a duplicate of this one.

Comment 10 Alan Cox 2004-06-21 15:23:53 UTC
The kernel, lanana and thus fhs/lsb say its "/dev/ttyUB*".  That
implies either there is a serious disconnect upstream (please resolve
upstream) or the bluetooth packages are the ones to correct

Comment 11 Bastien Nocera 2004-06-21 16:12:18 UTC
"/dev/ttyUB*" are from the now defunct Axis Bluetooth stack, not the
currently used BlueZ stack.
