Tiny USB BlueTooth dongle and OpenSolaris B112

Hi All,

 So I purchased a very small  USB BlueTooth dongle of ebay for $2.99.

 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300308294907

 It came in a brown envelope from China, no instructions :-)

 I added it to the Windows XP Home side of the AA1 10 inch, I'm able to activesync my HTC 8900 Tilt.

Then I went back to OpenSolaris (Nevada) B112 and followed the instructions here:

http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/bluetooth/

When you wget the installer and try to run it on a B112 system is gives you an error that it cannot find http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/bluetooth/, what it's really looking for is a file bluetooth_mouse_(uname -v).tar.gz.

So I start playing with the script and get all the way to snv_111, it installs and asks you to reboot the system.

It updates /kernel/sockfs and /kernel/genunix, when the system restarts /kernel/fs/nfs gets unresolved dependencies, so you cannot NFS mount anything.

Anyway I followed the instructions for setting up the bluetooth mouse, and I actually got one to work.

So I went back into /kernel and copied back the backups of sockfs and genunix.

NFS is working again, BT is bust :-)

For $2.99 with free shipping it was an interesting way to add BlueTooth to a non BT netbook.

I'll keep trying to download a B112 version just for fun.

Dave

Hi David,

Would be great if you could get the blue tooth stack worked on a bit more. The project always seems a bit dead. Would be great to get it working integrated and out the way in regards to desktop usability/functionality of OpenSolaris.

Best Regards,
Edward.

I agree, looks like we are at a standstill.
