14 I have one that works just fine. It shows up with lsusb as:
16 Bus 007 Device 002: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth
17 Dongle (HCI mode)
19 I ordered it online, for not much money, but I'd have to dig to see if
20 I still have any records of where I ordered it. (eBay is likely) I'd
21 also have to do some digging to see if I needed to modify my kernel
22 config to add anything for it. So far, I have only used it for a
23 headset, and I know I went through a number of trials and errors before
24 getting it to work consistently, but it does work fine.
