I'm running Fedora Core 4, 64 bit, kernel 2.6.11, gnome desktop.
I have a USB bluetooth dongle which I would like to use to connect to my phone etc. A few days ago, I opened bluetooth manager, it detected the phone, transferred files, everything was fine.
Today, it persists in telling me 'could not find bluetooth devices on the system'.
Sure enough, the usb dongle is now listed on usbview as 'unknown device'. The dongle itself is fine, it works on the windows partition.
I have checked that bluetooth services are started, all as it should be. Rebooting doesn't help.
So, any suggestions?
