Hi,

I have an brandnew ibook :D The problem is that the build in bluetooth module doesn't work. I've already tried different kernelsettings, but no luck.

If someone can post an working .config file of his 2.6.9 (gentoo-)kernel were the build-in bluetooth module works, I will be happy to try it out. :wink:

Or you can always send it to my email adress kubrick2001 AT gmail.com .

The error that I now get is the following while starting rfcomm ->

"Can't open RFCOMM control socket : Address family not supported by protocol. "

when I try to run "hcitool scan" he says
Device is not available : Address family not supported by protcol.

you were right, I forgot to add them to modules.conf. ;-)

But there is still the problem that he doesn't recognize my bluetooth adaptor.

I'm not sure if Apple's internal bluetooth adapter works with linux...
But this guy seems to implies it is.
http://www.netfort.gr.jp/~dancer/column/ibookg4.html.en

Maybe try to load every bluetooth module and look in /var/log/kernel/current for interesting messages. I have these modules compiled in, but no internal bluetooth adapter in my ibook, so can't check if it works:
bcm203x
bfusb
hci_uart
hci_usb
hci_vhci

ofcourse, and an usb bluetooth stick works fine on this notebook. Only he doesn't recognize my internal bluetooth module. In osX that module works fine.

Maybe something important, I was so 'stupid' to upgrade the firmware of that module... some mac osX software upgrade did me do that. The problem is that I cannot downgrade the frmware again.
