Description James Le Cuirot gentoo-dev 2012-08-15 08:13:32 UTC
Created attachment 321386 [details]

Command line tools have been sorely missing from Bluez since they were removed a good while back. Thankfully someone has created some new ones. Please see the attached ebuild. The latest release doesn't support recent versions of Bluez but this snapshot from Gitorious does.

I won't have to install X on my Pentium 120 after all! ;)
Comment 1 James Le Cuirot gentoo-dev 2012-08-18 12:52:27 UTC
This produces an implicit declaration for getline when building with uClibc but this is simply because that version of uClibc still treats it as a GNU extension. This has already been fixed in uClibc master.

This will be deprecated once net-wireless/bluez-5.1 is there.
Since BlueZ 5.0, there is "bluetoothctl" which replaces AFAIK all these tools.
Comment 3 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-05-07 12:31:06 UTC
Closing as OBSOLETE since this won't go in tree -- BlueZ 5.x will
