I just want to connect my PC and phone via bluetooth
when i first type "hciconfig -a"
the BD Address appears 00:00:00:00:00:00
after i run "hciconfig hci0 up"
appears 'can't set scan mode on hci0.device or resource busy(16)'
but i run "hciconfig -a" again
the BD Address appears 00:1B:10:00:33:F4
it seems linus has made the bluetooth available
then i try to use it find my phone
run "hcitool scan"
then problems came again "scanning...Inquiry failed connetion timed out"
i have tried it many times(even use other phone),it always appear this.
i don't know if the problems related to the upper one
how do i settle it?
