Description Norman Jonas 2008-12-11 13:29:50 UTC
This ebuild is intended for use by those who installed net-wireless/bluez-4*. It adjusts dependancies and adds an backport patch of Fedora 10 to readd browsing bluetooth devices capability. Tested with my K800i.

Reproducible: Always

This ebuild only supports net-wireless/bluez - the in tree ebuild would need a more elaborate work to support bluez-3 as well.

link to an upstream bug ? This won't be included if it doesn't provide backwards compatibility with at least bluez-libs-3.
Comment 5 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2008-12-12 02:57:15 UTC
At worst we need to just conditional patch if preserved-libs or revdep-rebuild is going to help users out once they migrate to bluez-4. We need to move to bluez-4 ASAP imho (I admit that I had personal pain with bluez-3 and getting a bluetooth mouse to work). A patch that would be compatible with either without conditional epatching would be nicer of course

Try 552356. There is no backwards compatibility there either. I don't think we should wait for supporting bluez-4 until GNOME-2.26, even if we would have to conditional patch.
Another option is to have two revisions, one going for bluez-3, another for bluez-4. Latter patches, former not. Then there's the additional work of keeping those in sync with bluez(-libs) package visibility

To not give any implicit impressions -- I have not compared the attached patch with what ended up in upstream SVN, nor tested it, nor vetted this. These would have to still be verified from our side (dev-zero has done some testing too). I personally currently don't have any easy access to any bluetooth devices that would have file storage (obex-ftp) - just a mouse and a headset.

Well, as to the testing part, the fedora patch (identical to this bug's attached one) seems to work fine.

Unfortunately, bluez seem to have decided to release obexd, which uses the same D-Bus service name as this (and obexd takes precedence if they're installed side by side), so I can see there being chaos up ahead, but for now (since obexd isn't in the tree), bluetooth-applet and all the gvfs-obexftp goodness seems to work fine.

Things to note include:

* Still no write support via GFS.
* obex:/// doesn't list nearby bluetooth devices (not sure it ever did for gvfs), you'll have to use bluetooth-applet to do that

added to the tree. Thanks for reporting and the patches.
