Angry bluetooth on the chromebook armv7l
i opened up a bug report

its either my expanding rootfs skills or this is a serious bug
i cant get my bluetoth speaker to play!
ive gotte n it to go twice now i archlinux arm but it took effort each and everytime
i had some notes on fatdog but that went away...
this here is a super rough list but it got to work after downgrading a bunch of stuff on a.l.a.
downgraded here on : #Server =$arch/$repo
minus the pulse packages (not sure why it wasnt work with those newer ones though) it just kept not enabling(failing at connect macaddress)
but after tinkering it worked as root only so the system is overall fail.

but still happy cause it worked.

a difference too at the connecting point is how the bluetooth speaker makes a sound when it connect, it just seems a little faint with slackware. im not sure.

but i finally filed a bug report.

and i have a few configuration files i could keep poking at but it seems a lot reougher going that route though if it does provide a solution somehow enable the signal to get stronger or someway id be damned maybe ill find it. though its mainly cause the pulse crashes and the a2dp is listed as unavailable in pactl on slackwarearm.

but maybe it is my slackwarearm computers and nobody elses oh well

got it!!!
from here
so i just rebuilt the libsbc package with that git package so A2DP works.

also though before this, i was adding firmware and modules from the arch linux laptop firmware (since they were different) so im not sure if that made any difference....

Now if I replace the original debian library by the following:
git clone git://

cd sbc
i should retry with the previous unmodified module and firmware since pretty sure its this libsbc that fix ed the a2dp!!!!
