Question Bluetooth on MIPS-System


currently I want to make my MIPS-System (AMD-Alchemy) working with Bluetooth. Support for Bluetooth was implemented as a Module in Kernel 2.4.21 (without any patch).

Then I crosscompiled the BlueZ-Libs & - Utils, and hcitool says:

"Device ist not available: Address Family not supported by protocol", altough there is a Bluetooth-USB-Dongle present or not. Before it was: "Device ist not available: Success", so I think I am one step closer than before.

lsmod says:

Module Size Used by Not tainted
saa7113 2540 0 (unused)
sii164 2980 0 (unused)
i2c-mb86290 1620 0 (unused)
i2c-algo-mb86290 2828 1 [i2c-mb86290]
i2c-dev 4428 0 (unused)
i2c-core 15504 0 [saa7113 sii164 i2c-algo-mb86290 i2c-dev]
ide-cs 3888 1
hostap 96208 0
ds 8012 1 [ide-cs]
au1x00_ss 8084 1
pcmcia_core 42176 0 [ide-cs ds au1x00_ss]

but nothing like:

l2cap, hci_usb, bluez

doing # modprobe l2cap.o in /bin results:
insmod: l2cap.o: no module by that name found
modprobe: failed to load module l2cap.o

although l2cap is there!
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 12400 Jan 1 2004 l2cap.o

now I am at the end of my ideas and would thank you in advance for any little hint!
edit: the Bluetooth-Dongle is working properly on a x86-based Linux-System, but not on my embedded-Mips-system...
