Bluetooth device became permanently down
Hi to all!
Today I've made the usual upgrade with slackpkg at the -current brunch and the bluetooth device stopped working.
I've a Sony Vaio Laptop, it has a bluetooth device (seen as an usb device) that worked perfectly before the upgrade.
I used to launch rc.bluetooth, and a simple inquiry with "hcitool scan" worked perfectly.
Since I've all bluez* packages installed and the correct driver compiled in the kernel (because worked 'till the update) I'm wondering why the device doesn't work anymore.
[Some useful output]
Thank you all very much for any reply.
There is a bit of confusion with BlueZ at the moment, as Pat put BlueZ 4.x out in -current and then retracted it since there is just not enough downstream support to make it viable right now.
So we started with the bluez-libs and bluez-utils packages, then had them removed and replaced with the single bluez-4.17 package, only to get removed and replaced with the original ones. Since you are using an automated package manager, it could be that there was some issue there with the various config files. BlueZ 3.x and BlueZ 4.x are wildly different, so any part remaining of one would almost certainly screw up the other.
I would suggest removing all of the BlueZ packages you currently have, deleting the /etc/bluetooth and /var/lib/bluetooth directories, and then reinstall the latest packages (bluez-libs-3.36-i486-2.tgz and bluez-utils-3.36-i486-4.tgz).
Remember that you will need to re-pair your device again after this.
