I inscribed to Linuxquestions for that question!!!
That's the mail i send to debian-user ML:
Hi all! A little help...
Cannot get to work BCM2045B2 MiniPC bluetooth module found in my Dell Vostro 1400. Various pages states it "work out of the box" but not for me...
I installed all the stuff
bluetooth, bluez-utils, bluez-firmware (BCM203x), bluez-audio, bluez-pcmcia, python-bluez, kbluetooth
I managed to modprobe hci_usb and/or bfusb(?)
Bluetooth led always off
I haven't WinXP or Vista, and i can't install them
A couple of questions:
1. A little summary about how to make a new initramfs image with new modules? Why bluetooth modules is not called from kernel on boot? ( i try an update-initramfs -u )
2. I think i need a firmware for this feature, isn't right? ehre can i find it?
3. How i implement this path? Or, is this patch implemented in kernel 2.26-1 amd64?
