Hi,

recently my bluetooth dongle has refused to work, although I haven't changed anything. So the bluetooth init script is being executed on startup.

lsusb returns:
Code:

Bus 004 Device 003: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)

hciconfig -a shows:
Code:

hci0:   Type: BR/EDR  Bus: USB
        BD Address: 00:15:83:48:28:E7  ACL MTU: 310:10  SCO MTU: 64:8
        DOWN
        RX bytes:1586 acl:0 sco:0 events:55 errors:0
        TX bytes:941 acl:0 sco:0 commands:54 errors:0
        Features: 0xff 0xff 0x8f 0xfe 0x9b 0xff 0x59 0x83
        Packet type: DM1 DM3 DM5 DH1 DH3 DH5 HV1 HV2 HV3
        Link policy: RSWITCH HOLD SNIFF PARK
        Link mode: SLAVE ACCEPT

After running hciconfig hci0 up, hciconfig -a returns:
Code:

hci0:   Type: BR/EDR  Bus: USB
        BD Address: 00:15:83:48:28:E7  ACL MTU: 310:10  SCO MTU: 64:8
        UP RUNNING PSCAN
        RX bytes:2111 acl:0 sco:0 events:81 errors:0
        TX bytes:1535 acl:0 sco:0 commands:80 errors:0
        Features: 0xff 0xff 0x8f 0xfe 0x9b 0xff 0x59 0x83
        Packet type: DM1 DM3 DM5 DH1 DH3 DH5 HV1 HV2 HV3
        Link policy: RSWITCH HOLD SNIFF PARK
        Link mode: SLAVE ACCEPT
        Name: 'nichtsdestotrotz-0'
        Class: 0x000104
        Service Classes: Unspecified
        Device Class: Computer, Desktop workstation
        HCI Version: 2.1 (0x4)  Revision: 0x149c
        LMP Version: 2.1 (0x4)  Subversion: 0x149c
        Manufacturer: Cambridge Silicon Radio (10)

If I run /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart, and run hciconfig -a once again, I end up with the first output, the device being down.

Maybe there's some misconfiguration somewhere, but I haven't found something on the net so far.

Any help will be appreciated.

Regards, Andreas

The problem occured because of the incompatibility between bluedevil 1.3.2 and bluez 5.15. So unmasking libbluedevil and bluedevil solved the problem.

I have the same problem after the upgrade. It cannot incompatibility with bluedevil since I do not have bluedevil installed on the computer.

I found this error message in the log "Sap driver initialization failed".
