      Hello,

      An update on using Bluetooth. I need Bluetooth on optware NSLU2. I
      could not pair devices. However I installed the bluez and not the
      bluez2 library and utilities. It turns our that the bluez2 does not
      require the pass key agent. The pin is used from a file on the
      NSLU2. Bluez2 is pairing, however you can only initiate the pairing
      from an external device.

      So what I installed:
      bluez meaning: (bluez2-libs 2.25-1, bluez2 utils 2.25-4, kernel-
      module-
      bluez (2.4.22.l2.3r63-r21), bluez-hcidump (1.40-1), dbus (1.1.1-2),
      kernel-module-bnep (2.4.22.l2.3r63-r21), kernel-module-hci-usb
      (2.4.22.l2.3r63-r21), kernel-module-l2cap (2.4.22.l2.3r63-r21),
      kernel-module-rfcomm (2.4.22.l2.3r63-r21))

      I still have some problems with rfcomm I will launch the question in
      a separate e-mail.

        Be aware that bluez2-utils is actually *older* than bluez-utils. The
        '2' refers to version 2.x of bluez - bluez is now up to version 3.x, but
        I have not been able to get any version 3.x of bluez to successfully
        connect with a Treo650 using dund, hence I added the older bluez2-utils
        package.

          Did you also install rfcomm? I need this because of asterisk 1.6. I
          could not install. See my other e-mail
