bluetooth device not detected slack14
i am more of a forum voyeur, but i haven't found a suitable solution to this issue. bluetooth worked with fedora i was running before, and i am a single linux system.
anyway, having issues getting my bluetooth up and running... set my rc.bluetooth to exec and started it, but i seem to have an issue with hciconfig finding my device. it doesn't return anything actually. when i pull ifconfig, there is an eth0, lo, irda, but no hci0 i have been promised
i have a thinkpad t60 and it has built-in bluetooth. wireless works as expected, no problem with brightness controls or any other acpi-type function i have tried. checked my bios and bluetooth is activated.
so here is what i have found and frankly have no idea how to deal with: lsusb doesn't show a bluetooth adapter has been found. it sees my fingerprint reader and root hub devices. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
