Unhappy USB Bluetooth dongle no longer working (FC4-64)


Hi all,

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?

Laura.

Maybe something is gone wrong with bluetooth files,I mean apps. drivers.Type "dmesg" in console it may help you to find what is wrong.
Other solution is uninstall all connected with bluetooth and then reinstall it again.

Can't see anything unusual, all the bluetooth items seem ok. It's very strange.
