I can't make my Bluetooth USB Dongle available on my 6000L (Stock ROM). My BT USB dongle is NOT listed on the support list, it was manufactured by E-Bestand which has a Item Number ESB06, but I don't know the chip version.

I had followed this thread “New Bluetooth Drivers, For Sharp ROMs using 2.4.18 kernel” http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=9995&hl=bluetooth and installing the ipks as following:
bluez-zaurus-2.13_2.4.18_alpha3_arm.ipk
susp-resume_0.9-3.1.ipk
sudo-0.1.ipk
susp-resume-bluez_0.9.1_arm.ipk


Besides, I also installed the following ipks simultaneously:
qshdlg_0.6.2-1_arm.ipk
bluepin_0.0.1-1_arm.ipk
qtopia-bluetoothnetworkapplet_1.0.1_arm.ipk
qtopia-pannetworkapplet_1.0.1_arm.ipk
bluetooth-support_1.23_arm.ipk


I had also deleted the file:
/etc/pcmcia/bm3.conf

When I entered konsole and typed “hciconfig”, it shows:
hci0: Type: USB
BD Address: 00:11:67:05:EE:82 ACL MTU: 678:8 SCO MTU: 48:10
UP RUNNING PSCAN ISCAN
RX bytes:99 acl:0 sco:0 events:13 errors:0
TX bytes:299 acl:0 sco:0 commands:13 errors:0

Question 1: In my understanding, if it could show the messages listed above, it means that this Dongle is recognized by Zaurus, and it should be able to use the BT applications on Zaurus. Does it correct??

Next, I turned my cellphone’s and compuetr’s BT on, and then typed “hcitool scan”, it shows:
# hcitool scan
Scanning ...
Inquiry failed: Connection timed out

It cannot find my cellphone or my computer. As so far, I cannot use any BT applications on my Zaurus 6000L.
Question 2: If my understanding of Question 1 is correct, how to make the BT applications get work on my 6000L??

Please help me to overcome the two questions. Thanks in advance!

is the dongle getting enough power? (I can only think of checking by using a powered hub)

it does seem as if the dongle is being properly recognised by the zaurus, and as the followup poster said, perhaps there's not enough power to drive it properly. do you know if the dongle is class1 or 2, i.e. 100m or 10m range - the former will take a lot more current.

can you "see" the Zaurus if you scan from another device?

try turning off security and authentication in the /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf and then trying the hcitool scan, and sdptool browse.

Thank you adf! I never thought about this, you are really so smart!

Thank you speculatrix! This dongle is Class 2 (up to 60m range), so it is very possible that there is not enough power as you and adf mentioned.

No, my computers (desktop and laptop) and cellphone can’t see the Zaurus.

According to your suggestion, I revised the script in /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf to:

Security disable;

# Authentication and Encryption
#auth disable;
encrypt disable;
)


Then I tried the hcitool scan, but my Zaurus still can’t find any device. Therefore I tried sdptool browse, it got:
#sdptool browse
Inquiring …
Inquiry failed


At this monent, my computers (desktop and laptop) and cellphone still can’t see the Zaurus.

I have further question, though the BT dongle was recognized by my Zaurus, but none of my other BT devices could see the Zaurus, why?? Because lacking of power for the dongle??

Because I don’t have a powered hub, I will try to borrow one for testing in the next few days.

Thank you again, adf and speculatrix!!

Because I can't borrow any powered USB hub from my friends, so I have not test it yet. However, my friend give me another USB dongle (CSR chipest), so I retry this BT dongle with the same IPKs.

This time, my desktop, laptop, and HP PDA could "see" my Zaurus, but my Z still could not see other BT devices by typing hcitool scan and sdptool browse.

Does anyone has further suggestion to check whether or not it is possible to use USB BT dongle (CSR chipest) on the 6000L? Thanks in advance.
