Subject: [gentoo-user] Has anyone been able to get internet through a phone via bluetooth to work?
Date: Tue, 23 Jan 2007 00:22:25
1 I got it to work in ubuntu on a friends computer in about 15 minutes but
2 gentoo has something seriously wrong with bluetooth. I have tried
3 everything I can think of. Is there something I am doing wrong here?
4 Anyone have any ideas? I have checked and rechecked my configuration
5 files but can't find any problems. My phone seems to be paired, I can
6 ping it and find out what services it operates. But it seems you can do
7 that even when it's not paired.
9 When the bluetooth service is started /dev/rfcomm0 is created and should
10 be linked to my phone. Here is my rfcomm.conf
11 *Code:*
12 #
13 # RFCOMM configuration file.
14 #
16 rfcomm0 {
17 # Automatically bind the device at startup
18 bind yes;
20 # Bluetooth address of the device
21 device 00:12:56:5a:92:59;
23 # RFCOMM channel for the connection
24 channel 8;
26 # Description of the connection

30 My DUN service on my phone should be on channel 8 (that what it shows on
31 other computers and this one) but I get the following error when I try
32 to connect. My phone does not do anything when I do this. But I noticed
33 that if I try to connect on channel 3 my bluetooth icon on my phone will
34 light up like it is prepared to do something. Only thing I can think of
35 is that bluetooth in gentoo (an older version than what is available I
36 beleive) doesn't support channel 8. But that just sounds stupid.
37 A simple rfcomm connect gives the following error:
38 *Code:*
39 rfcomm connect /dev/rfcomm0 00:12:56:5A:92:59 8
40 Can't create RFCOMM TTY: Address already in use
44 Any ppp program will also report the modem in use or not available.
46 Thanks for any help.
