Angry hciconfig command no longer recognised


Hi,

I've been trying to get the bluetooth modules up and running on Fedora 2 core, but I've run into another problem. I've instlaled the packages from the bluez website, I've added lines to the modprobe.conf file, and all of a sudden I can no longer hciconfig!!
[root@Lab103-115 bluetooth]# /sbin/lsmod

[root@Lab103-115 bluetooth]# hciconfig
bash: hciconfig: command not found

I get the same error with /sbin/hciconfig

It's a usb stick I'm trying to use now, and I've directions from the FAQ on the manufacturer's (sitecom) website, but I can't usderstand why hciconfig isn't recognised.

I've made an error before where I didn't know modules.conf was updated to modprobe.conf... is this something similar????

Hi,

Use "si -" (note the minus symbol) to login as root. The reason was hciconfig was not on your path. Using the minus runs the root login script when you login, which adds the dir of hciconfig to the path.
