I am not sure if due to changes in the kernel (3.12.20-gentoo), or udev (212-r1), or bluez(5.18 ), bluetooth no longer works with my Dell Wireless 370 Bluetooth Mini-card. Here is some info about the device itself:

You'll see that modules like bnep, or rfcomm have not been initialised. Even if I modprobe them manually I see no difference.

Is this a known bug? Anything I can apply as a workaround - recently I had started to run hciconfig manually to bring the bluetooth card up, but now nothing seems to work.

Am I the only one with a Dell laptop?! 8O

I have tried to use /lib/udev/hid2hci manually, which was previously run by udev, to switch this particular bluetooth device from hid to hci.
Code:
# lsusb | grep -i blue
Bus 002 Device 008: ID 413c:8156 Dell Computer Corp. Wireless 370 Bluetooth Mini-card
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)

$ udevadm trigger --dry-run --subsystem-match=usb --attr-match=idVendor=413c --attr-match=idProduct=8156 --verbose
/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.6/2-1.6.3

$ /lib/udev/hid2hci --devpath=/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.6/2-1.6.3 --mode=hci --method=dell
error: could not find '/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.6/2-1.6.3'


$ udevadm trigger --dry-run --subsystem-match=usb --attr-match=idVendor=0a5c --attr-match=idProduct=4500 --verbose
/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.6

$ /lib/udev/hid2hci --devpath=/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.6 --mode=hci --method=dell
error: could not find '/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.6'


Why is the path not found? Note: I tried the above as root with the same error.

What has broken with the latest versions of udev?

Shall I be filing a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

Hi there, you're not alone.

I have the similar problem, but the difference is that i have this error in system logs:
Code:
systemd-udevd[4020]: Process 'hid2hci --method=dell --devpath=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.1/1-1.1.2/1-1.1.2:1.0' failed with exit code 1.


I have same bluetooth card on Dell Vostro notebook:
Code:
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)


running manually doesn't give any more details:
Code:

# /lib64/udev/hid2hci  --method=dell --devpath=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.1/1-1.1.2/1-1.1.2:1.0

i'm not sure whether i need to have permission to run that as user, but anyways:
Code:

$ /lib64/udev/hid2hci  --method=dell --devpath=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.1/1-1.1.2/1-1.1.2:1.0
Can't open device: Permission denied (13)
error: unable to handle '/sys//devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.1/1-1.1.2'


If you have resolved that or have any clues - please share - i would be happy :)

P.S. systemd-udevd uses 100% one of my CPUs all the time :(

I have tried to comment all rules related to Dell cards in /lib64/udev/rules.d/97-hid2hci.rules and reloading systemd-udevd.
That helped to get rid of errors in log.

Hi valentin.mu,

I had forgotten about this post - it's a good five years ago. :) The CPU being pegged at 100% is caused by the kernel and buggy code introduced some time ago:

See here: https://bugs.gentoo.org/663772

and here: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=199035

I have modified by hand the kernel sources before recompiling it and this fixes the problem. I'm about to compile linux-4.19.23-gentoo sources, which hopefully have been patched upstream to get rid of this problem for good.

Sadly the problem persists. Editing by hand the files mentioned in the kernel bug report and recompiling fixes the problem.

Hmm ... with kernel 4.19.23 I get the same nagging in dmesg and CPU jumping up when I switch the mini-card on. :(
Code:
systemd-udevd[8270]: Process 'hid2hci --method=dell --devpath=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.6/2-1.6.2/2-1.6.2:1.0' failed with exit code 1.
[ 4663.128697] systemd-udevd[8270]: Process 'hid2hci --method=dell --devpath=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.6/2-1.6.2/2-1.6.2:1.0' failed with exit code 1.
[ 4663.134434] systemd-udevd[8270]: Process 'hid2hci --method=dell --devpath=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-1/2-1.6/2-1.6.2/2-1.6.2:1.0' failed with exit code 1.


Trying to comment out various BIND/UNBIND entries in the kernel sources before recompilling the kernel no longer fixes this problem.

I don't run an initrd here, so I don't know if the problem has something to do with how the card is being initialised and its firmware loaded.

EDIT: I can confirm commenting out the lines in 97-hid2hci.rules referring to 413c:8158 stops the endless loop and dmesg spam. Thereafter the wireless can be used, but the bluetooth cannot be enabled. So although this quietens the CPU it leaves the laptop without bluetooth. Sigh ... :(

have you recently upgraded to udev-init-scripts-33, possibly? I see similar systemd-udevd errors after upgrade, and I suspect that for one of my boxes this was the reason I couldn't connect via wifi anymore. Downgrading helped for now.

Thanks Gentlenoob,

Yes, I have, but this problem is long standing and initially started with changes in the kernel. The change to udev-init-scripts probably hasn't helped. I see no point in rolling back this update since eventually other things may break. Perhaps I should throw away this old laptop and buy a replacement which works.

Thanks for reply on such old topic, @MickKi :)
I'll take a look at those bugs.
And i'm also starting to think about replacing my laptop :D

@Gentlenoob, udev-init-scripts is only for openrc-based system,
i'm not sure that the cause in a way udev is started/stopped.
No need for this package on systemd-based one(which i have) :)
Thanks for pointing that out, i would probably get rid of that package :)

Also:
Code:

Hi Moriah,

I no longer have hciconfig installed on this laptop, but your bluetoothctl output is the same like mine. I don't know what your bt chipset is, but if it is similar to my Broadcom BCM2046B1 (413c:8156) then the problems with it started with the addition of some bind/unbind code added to the kernel way back since series 3.12.20, which does not seem able to work with the BCM hardware/firmware.

Up until kernel 4.14.83 I and sys-fs/udev-init-scripts-32 I was able to edit manually the sources to remove the offending code as described here: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/attachment.cgi?id=276537&action=edit

Sadly editing the kernel sources no longer works, so bt on my laptop is totally unusable. :(

My laptop uses:
Code:

03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak] (rev 34)

for both wifi and bluetooth.

I am running:
Code:

Linux onesimus 4.14.83-gentoo #39 SMP PREEMPT Thu Feb 28 14:40:05 EST 2019 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3740QM CPU @ 2.70GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

for my kernel. Previously I ran 3.12.21 and it worked.

Looking at the change you pointed to, wouldn't it be easier to just fall back to a slightly earlier kernel? What was the highest kernel version that *DID* work?

Any idea when this will be officially fixed? What kernel version will it start working in again?

You can enable wifi/bluetooth and compare the vendor and product ID with mine (lsusb), if you want to confirm they are the same.

The stable gentoo sources version before 3.12.20-gentoo were working fine. They're no longer in the tree. I could get them off the attic, or use vanilla sources, but a lot of security fixes have been added since.

I don't know if this will ever get fixed without more detailed troubleshooting and reports by people with affected hardware. I didn't have the time to devote to this yet, but I may retire this laptop soon anyway. I'm hoping/waiting for CPUs without Intel's ME and AMD's PSP/ST to be made available for the consumer market.

I'm not about to retire my laptop. It has 32 GB ram and up to 4 TB ssd if I put a pair of 2 TB drives in it. it has an I-7 with 8 cores using hyperthreading. I got it to support multiple virtual machines under kvm so I could build virtual networks for testing purposes. It has never failed me yet. I just need to get this stupid bluetooth working. For some reason, linux seems to have cronic problems with bluetooth. If I could find a 4 series kernel that would work with my bluetooth, I would be happy. The whole purpose of my upgrade was to get me away from a 3 series kernel, but bluetooth worked there.

BTW What is "Intel's ME and AMD's PSP/ST"? I don't keep up with the latest cpu hardware variatons for windows/linux consumer machines. I only get that deep if I need to for the embedded stuff I work on for a living.

Both of these processor SoC components are built in Out-of-Band platform controllers , which are always running, listening and controlling your system as long as there is power available.[1][2] With a network connection these SoCs are capable of remotely taking over your system, running firmware updates, copying/deleting your data, recording your keystrokes and network comms and what not. This is great if you are running a fleet of corporate laptops and you want remote management capabilities - apparently corporate clients requested this functionality - or if you are a state actor spying on populations. Not so great if you remain unsympathetic to an OoB hypervisor with proprietary code and published vulnerabilities running 24-7 on your PC.

Some hackers and software projects have looked into deleting/crippling at least part of the proprietary firmware which allows these SoCs to run.[3][4] Nevertheless, without hardware design changes at least the physical capability is there for your system to be taken over. Given vulnerabilities and rootkits have been published and both Intel and AMD have rushed over to publish firmware updates, but without explaining the efficacy of their changes, I will not be buying any of their goodies soon. This leaves the expensive POWER9 for desktops, but nothing yet for laptops. :(

You could try using an external USB bluetooth to replace the broken BCM device, if bluetooth is important for you. I don't use either WiFi or bluetooth often, so for me the inconvenience is not a big deal.

OK, I am familiar with those SoC's you mention; I just didn't remember their acronyms. I read about them when they were first announced. I dislike the idea for a non-enterprise environment also. I connect through suficient firewalling over ethernet that I am not worried, and I always run my cellular broadband modem in NAT mode, so again, I am protected. The only place to worry is open unprotected wifi, and then the attacker must be within wifi range of one of the site's AP to attack, since even they also run in NAT mode. I realize iptables is defenseless against this, but my gateway firewall is an old single core celleron, so it doesn't have that "feature".

Regarding bluetooth, I really only use bluetooth for my mouse. Because my laptop only has 4 usb ports, I like bluetooth because it doesn't burn a usb port. Also, since I grab the laptop and run off to conference rooms, etc., I don't want external wires or even dongles that can get bumped and damaged. Bluetooth solves that nicely. I've also use this particular bluetooth mouse for about 10 years, and I'm rather used to its feel. It is small and fits nicely in my pocket. It tracks well on many different surfaces.

It's been a long time since I had a look at setting up a remote control server for early MEs (no AMT). I can't recall if once enabled the client pings the server with its address and setting a reverse tunnel, or how a secure connection to the server is set up. It may be the client connects to the provisioning server using TLS and therefore NAT'ing doesn't affect it. Either way, I am not prepared to pay these guys for spyware embedded in their hardware, without any control over it being offered to me.

You think these things ping or otherwise "call home"? How do they know what address to contact? Something must need to be configured first. Surely the ip addr is not hardwired in. If its in firmware. is the firmware loadable at boot time? Of course if it cryptographically signed, you couldn't modify it anyway. :evil:

Back to bluetooth...

I have about decided to go with a dongle after all. I found one at Microcenter for $12.95 USD, and I have to go that direction tomorrow anyway, so I will stop in at get one.

Check what the chipset is - anything with drivers in the kernel and firmware included in linux-firmware should work straight out of the box. However, with most of these things you won't know for sure until you plug it in and see what dmesg and lsusb reports. Hope it goes well for you.

Most of these usb plug-ins have a usbserial option, and that should be good enough for my mouse.

CORRECTION:

I spent some time today looking at this annoying problem once more. I applied the following changes which revert the BIND/UNBIND code in the source files for kernel 4.19.23-gentoo and they work! I had to apply them manually, because the lines where the edits are required are different from the patch version listed below. Last time I tried this I must have made a mistake, but this time it worked.

https://bugzilla.kernel.org/attachment.cgi?id=276537&action=edit

Having to patch source files each time and doing this manually is a pain, but I have no other solution at present. Hopefully the patch will be included in future kernel versions.

NOTE: On my laptop the WiFi service has to be stopped for bluetooth service to work. They share the same USB controller. The Linux driver is not good enough it seems to manage both enabled at the same time. With both services running the bluetooth remains the poor relative and is unable to connect to any devices, while the WiFi works fine. Once the wlan0 service is stopped the bluetooth is able to connect, without needing to restart it. On Windows enabling both WiFi and bluetooth at the same time does not present a problem - so this must be a Linux chipset driver issue.

I don't have a fix for using both WiFi and bluetooth at the same time, but again on this PC it never worked.

HTH.

Thanks for the correction, but I'm still going to try the usb plug-in bluetooth adapter. I absolutely need both wifi and bluetooth at the same time when I am on the road. When am at the home office, I have wired ethernet and a wired mouse, not to mention a wired full sized keyboard and a big 3840x2180 monitor. On the road its just the laptop, wifi or cellular internet connection, and a bluetooth mouse. I can't stand those touch pads!

I got the bluetooth dongle. It is very tiny, so bump damage is limited. I plugged it in, and it worked first time!
