Hi, I have mandriva linux 2007.1 running on a dell 1420 laptop. I tried installing the bluez stack but the bluetooth still isn't working. It seemed to install fine (I followed the directions in the readme) but if I do whereis bluez nothing shows up. I don't know if that is normal or not. If I look in my archive manager it says that the bluez firmware is installed along with the utilities. My laptop shipped with vista and hence came installed with the vista stack. I'm kind of a newb. Any help would be appreciated.
