fedora 12 fingerprint and bluetooth not detected?


Hi,

I upgraded to fedora 12 last week. I was quite excited abt the new release but I was a bit dissapointed. usually all my hardware is configured out of the box but this time, I had to do some tweaking to get some things to work.

but I hv been unsuccessful in trying to congure bluetooth and fingerprint logon... when I had fedora 11.. both were detected .. can anyone help me to get these working. Following is the output of lsmod

just another question.. there are a few changes in fedora 12 which hv thoroughly confused me. like in previous releases.. when I ran gnome-volume-control.. I got a window with all the controls related to mic .. but now looks like fedora 12 has done away with it.. how do I test my mic if its working.. I mean there is no application like gnome-sound-recorder to test it now..

I have fedora 12 running on toshiba satellite m200 laptop

thanks in advance.
