Hi,

Looking at the kernel source it appears that ubt has indeed been ported over into 3.8, I'm wondering if anyone has managed to hack it together into a working state.

I have built the bluetooth-tools (and libs) but I seem to be missing some important stuff for my particularly USB device... in particular a firmware download utility since it uses a Broadcom BCM2033 chipset.

OK, looking into this a little further OpenBSD provides specific firmware download for a range of devices within the drivers... standard location for firmware files is /etc/firmware - there is no firmware downloader for the BCM2033 yet in the kernel sad.gif

OK, forgot to make a note... I have confirmed there is no Bluetooth support at all at the moment.

The ubt driver according to the kernel cvs is explicitely commented out and you can confirm this by checking the kernel devices...

config -e /bsd
list
quit

returns no ubt devices

Ah well, lets hope that something eventually happens otherwise longer term I think I will need to get a UTMS/GPRS modem card to try.

The kernel can be compiled easily with ubt support (and recognize my low cost dongle). I managed to find a compilable gpsdrive version, and the gpsd port also compile easily.

But... I couldn't manage to find a way of getting things to work together : gpsd/gpsdrive want a ttyS device, and ubt does not seem to provide one by default. I did a bit of searching on mailing lists, but I fear I am not a specialist in low level drivers, and I am completely stucked...

I haven't been able to find bluetooth support on {Free,Net,Open}BSD =/ I would love to sync my phone with my pc (or maybe even my powerbook with my pc?) I guess I'll wait as patiently as I can wink.gif

ok, here's the picture..

FreeBSD does have working bluetooth including rfcomm and I have been able to set up a test machine and run a ppp connection over it.

I don't know about NetBSD.

OpenBSD has rudimentary bluetooth support in the form of ubt, it doesn't yet have rfcomm. I was going to port it but there seemed to be a lot of folk in the developer circle that couldn't come to any agreement what it should look like in userland. Also there didn't seem to be enough interest in thrashing it out. Rather then spend a lot of time porting it and having it rejected from cvs because it wasn't what the committers wanted I shelved the idea.

Well this is a good sign:

for default the bsd 4.0 kernel don't have usb bluetooth support.
I have prepared the 4.0 kernel with usb bluetooth support.
you can take it here:

Bluetooth works; however, a communication protocol has yet to be implemented for OpenBSD. I can make a bluetooth connection between my Z and FreeBSD laptop, but I have no way of transferring anything from the Z to the laptop. FreeBSD uses the RFCOMM Protocol for bluetooth comms. I followed the directions on the following site to establish the connection between the Z and FBSD laptop: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1...-bluetooth.html
