I have a PCI Broadcom BCM2033 based USB device, as shown here by lsusb:
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0a5c:2033 Broadcom Corp. BCM2033 Bluetooth
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Apparently this uses the hci_usb driver. However, when I plug the device in....
[4294855.792000] usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
[4294855.907000] bcm203x_probe: Mini driver request failed
[4294855.907000] bcm203x: probe of 2-1:1.0 failed with error -5
And concequently hcitool dev shows nothing. ls /dev/hci* shows "no such file".
I've got bluez-utils installed using apt-get. According to another thread you need bluez-bcm203x package, but uname -a confirms:
Linux laptop1337 2.6.12-10-386 #1 Sat Mar 11 16:13:17 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux
I have a 2.6 kernel so this doesn't apply.
I really don't have a clue why this is working, and the people in #ubuntu have ignored me for the past 3 hours. So please, please help me! This device is supposed to be properly supported!
