View Full Version : Bluetooth is not working after updating the kernel

Hi,

I received a notification for a security alert to update the kernel and after I installed it the bluetooth doesn't work

When I start Bluetooth application it says "your computer does not have any Bluetooth adapters plugged in"

And from the lspci -v output it seems that there is no kernel driver in use for the Bluetooth (the below output)

04:00.1 Bluetooth: Ralink corp. RT3290 Bluetooth
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 18ec
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 10
Memory at d0600000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 3
Capabilities: [50] MSI: Enable- Count=1/32 Maskable- 64bit+
Capabilities: [70] Express Endpoint, MSI 00
Capabilities: [100] Advanced Error Reporting
Capabilities: [140] Device Serial Number 00-00-e2-41-62-3f-76-b8

So how can I fix this?

Thanks
Ahmed

I'm not in front of a SLED machine right now but I was using USB Bluetooth do gle earlier on a fully updated a SLED 11SP3 machine.

Can you tell us what version of SLED you are using and the kernel version? If you're not sure how run


$ cat /etc/*release*
$ uname -a

Have you installed all outstanding updates?

Is this HP machine which shipped with SLED on it?

I'm using SLED 11 SP3 and the kernel is 3.0.93-0.8

There are no outstanding updates

And the machine is an HP one with SLED preinstalled on it. It was SLED11 SP2 and I upgraded it to SLED SP3

I beleive I did something wrong while update the kernel that might have deinstalled the bluetooth driver :(

Hi
Can you post the output from (in code tags);


zypper lr -d

There may be a specific bluetooth driver for the HP, it may not be in
their repositories, hence it's not working.

Hi
OK, if you open YaST Software Management, then top left in the
dropdown, select 'repositories' in the list below, can you select
SLED11-SP3-HP-BNB-Updates. Now in the right hand panel shows all the
rpm's available. Is there a bluetooth one in there?

I can't select SLED11-SP3-HP-BNB-Updates! It instantly disappears from that list so does this mean that there are no packages available on that repo?

When I search for rt3290 I find the below package but I believe before the last kernel update I had another one with default or something that I can't find any more so I must have accidentally de-installed that one!

And now can't find it! Shall I try to locate it in SP2-HP-BNB-Updates repo?

Hi
Use zypper to show info about the package and post that please,


zypper if rt3290


This will show which repository it came from, also is the module loaded?



lsmod |grep rt


If it isn't try a modprobe on it;



modprobe rt3290

Hi
OK, so that's just a daemon to start the bluetooth, so in /etc/init.d/
directory is there a file called rt3290? What about a Function key+ Fn
key to press for wireless, sometimes they turn on wireless, then press
for bluetooth and press again for both....

The device is seen, but no kernel module.....

Yes, there is. check the below output



ll rt*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1204 Aug 28 2012 rt3290d




What about a Function key+ Fn
key to press for wireless, sometimes they turn on wireless, then press
for bluetooth and press again for both....
I have a separate key for that but it toggles the wireless ON and OFF only



The device is seen, but no kernel module.....

I have a separate key for that but it toggles the wireless ON and OFF
only

so how to assign that kernel module?

Thanks,

Hi
So it you run;


/etc/init.d/rt3290d status

What is the output? If unused or dead, try starting (replace status
with start)

Can you also check the output from the command dmesg, there is nothing
looking for firmware?

The output of dmesg is too long and got an error while trying to post it here so what I should look for

Hi
Hopefully I haven't missed the boat, sorry for the delay. In the dmesg
output is there any mention of the word - firmware.

Sorry for coming back on this, I had other more important issues to take care of so anyway when I do:

dmesg |grep firmware

It doesn't return anything so am I using the correct command syntax?

Thanks
Ahmed

Hi
There have been some kernel updates, your system is all up to date
still?

Can you also install the rfkill package from my home repository here
and run that (as root user);
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/malcolmlewis:/SLE_11_SPn_General/SLE_11_SP3/x86_64/rfkill-0.5-4.1.x86_64.rpm


rfkill list
