Summary: missing protocol switching support in bluetooth subsystem
Product: Gentoo Linux Reporter: Manuel Harnisch <mh>

Description Manuel Harnisch 2005-03-18 09:34:34 UTC
The current kernel contains a bluez-patch that has protocol switching support disabled. This renders devices such as the Logitech diNovo Media Desktop partially useless (works only in limited boot-protocol mode).
A new version of the -mh patch was just posted on, fixing this problem.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.11-r4
2.Connect diNovo Set
3.Run hidd from commandline -> boot-protocol
Comment 1 Henrik Brix Andersen 2005-03-22 11:02:54 UTC
So you suggest that we do what? Include the newer patch in gentoo-sources?
Comment 2 Manuel Harnisch 2005-03-22 11:17:25 UTC
Yes, that was my idea, any objections?
Comment 3 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-04-01 03:18:10 UTC
The patch is too big to include. Can you point us at a smaller patch which addresses this issue and no others?
Comment 4 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-04-13 09:02:49 UTC
Need split-out patches before I will consider this.
