Does anybody know where I might find an *.ipk of the python-bluez module?

Thanks in advance.

My my! The silence is deafening! dry.gif

Managed to sort this one out for myself in case anyone else wants to know.

Firstly install zgcc on your Zee. I got mine from Zaurus Onboard Development Tools

Next get Debian Package for Version 0.3 from the Project's homepage.

Upload the Debian package onto your Zee and use dpkg to unpack it.

cd to the directory created by unpacking the debian package and then cd to the src directory inside it.


python setup.py install

This will add PyBluez to your site-packages.

Now test it works by plugging in your CF Bluetooth card and running this script.

import bluetooth
import select

class MyDiscoverer(bluetooth.DeviceDiscoverer):

   def pre_inquiry(self):
       self.done = False

   def device_discovered(self, address, device_class, name):
       print "%s - %s" % (address, name)

       # get some information out of the device class and display it.
       # voodoo magic specified at:
       # https://www.bluetooth.org/foundry/assignnumb/document/baseband

       major_classes = ( "Miscellaneous",
                         "LAN/Network Access point",
                         "Imaging" )
       major_class = (device_class >> 8) & 0xf
       if major_class < 7:
           print "  %s" % major_classes[major_class]
           print "  Uncategorized"

       print "  services:"
       service_classes = ( (16, "positioning"),
                           (17, "networking"),
                           (18, "rendering"),
                           (19, "capturing"),
                           (20, "object transfer"),
                           (21, "audio"),
                           (22, "telephony"),
                           (23, "information"))

       for bitpos, classname in service_classes:
           if device_class & (1 << (bitpos-1)):
               print "    %s" % classname

   def inquiry_complete(self):
       self.done = True

d = MyDiscoverer()
d.find_devices(lookup_names = True)

readfiles = [ d, ]

while True:
   rfds = select.select( readfiles, [], [] )[0]

   if d in rfds:

   if d.done: break

If all is working OK, you should see the output of a scan for all Bluetooth devices in the area.
