Topic: Trouble with bluetooth dongle installation
Has anyone had any luck getting a USB Bluetooth dongle working on a Chumby classic? I have a dongle I'm trying to add, but I can't get the drivers/stack going. The dongle was working with another linux box, so I feel I should be good on the hardware front. I just hit a wall on the software side.
So far, I used scratchbox to cross-compile bluez-libs and bluez-utils (v3.36), and deployed them to the Chumby via a USB memory stick (via http://wiki.chumby.com/mediawiki/index. … n_Chumby)., and rebooted. However, I'm not too sure what to do next.
Running hcitool gives the following:
chumby:/mnt/usb/usr/bin# ./hcitool scan Device is not available: Address family not supported by protocol
According to the wisdom of the internet, I need to get the hci_usb module added first. However, two problems on that front. modprobe says:
chumby:/drivers# modprobe modprobe: cannot parse modules.dep
and insmod gives
chumby:/drivers# insmod hci_usb.ko insmod: cannot insert 'hci_usb.ko': Unknown symbol in module (-1): No such file or directory
According to more internet wisdom (http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=2667), that error may be because hci_usb.ko requires bluetooth.ko, which I don't see in the /drivers directory.
So I'm not sure where to go next. I see the dongle in the usb device list (though the info looks a bit different than the other devices -- no driver or device name)

After some forum searching, I see that awalton mentions having some bluetooth success. http://forum.chumby.com/viewtopic.php?id=435 Anyone else? (Or perhaps awalton can help me out?)
My chumby info, if that's useful:
chumby:~# chumby_version -s 1.7.2 chumby:~# chumby_version -f 1830
P.S. I'm sure I'm way off with some of the terms I've used and procedures I've attempted. I'm a bit out of my element here, so no need to sugar-coat any responses.
P.P.S. I should point out that while I was ultimately able to compile bluez-utils, I had to add a "limits.h" include to a few files (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions … lp-736869/) to do so. So it's possible my suspect compilation is the root cause.
