Bluetooth by Cambridge Silicon Radio - Anybody got it working?


Wise Old Owl
I have a HP Mini 110 netbook that has bluetooth by something called Cambridge Silicon Radio. HP itself says it is Motorola bluetooth.

I generally use PCLinuxOS on it, but I have also tried Chakra, Fedora 17, Pardus on the same machine. Almost all of them detect that there is a bluetooth adapter present but they are not able to make it work in that whenever I scan for other devices, nothing comes up and also no other devices are able to detect it.

I know that the hardware works because it is fine under Windows 7 Starter that came with it.

Also a recent update to kernel 3.2 on PCLinuxOS seems to have made the bluetooth completely undetectable. Have not tried the new kernel on any other distro yet.
