Blackberry - bluetooth - 14.2 - Audio fails to connect.


This only fails on my Blackberry smart phone. I have it paired with Slackware 14.2, 64 bit. I can get audio streaming to work right after I pair the phone. Once I shut the system down, and restart the next day, I can no longer connect the phone as an audio source. I get the following message in bluetooth-manager.

Quote:
DBusFailedError: Resource temporarily unavailable...
I also have a Samsung tablet, it works normally as an audio streaming device.

I have tried this on current, the Blackberry works as expected on current.

FWIW, the bluetooth works all day in my car.

The system is up to date, and is a full install.

I have seen several posts with similar problems with various devices, so I know I'm not alone.

I saw a post suggesting the user runs the following command.

Quote:
# pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover
No protocol specified
xcb_connection_has_error() returned true
No protocol specified
Failure: Module initialization failed
As you can see, I need to specify a protocol. Fine, where do I find out what protocols to specify? I looked at pactl man page, no help.

module-bluetooth-discover is a .so file, so I tried

'modinfo madule-bluetooth-discover.so' ; no dice, nothing.

Modinfo states there is no such module, there is. I tried with the full path, did not work.

I also have looked at the bluetooth packages, between current and 14.2. Bluez is 5.47 on 14.2 and 5.50 on current.

I was wondering if I could upgrade 5.47 to 5.50. Is this possible, or would other packages need re-compiling? I have no idea.

Any other thoughts on how to fix this, or a work around?

Hmm. I'm seeing the same thing.

EDIT: To be more precise, I'm seeing this behavior with an H800 Logitech Headset. That worked fine with earlier versions of the bluetooth stack. I don't know if I'll have the time in the next week to track down what is going on.

Which model BlackBerry are you using? Also, what is the version of BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, or Android is it running?

The phone is a Blackberry passport, the system is Blackberry 10 OS, release 10.3.3.1463.

Just check to see if there are updates, no, this is the latest release.
