ok, back from the world of the deads this is a first attempt to get regularly productive again in gentooland. 

This seems to work fine on a IBM T41p under 2.6.5-mm6 and with a Siemens S55 bluetooth phone and a logitech MX900 bluetooth mouse

Comment 9 António Meireles 2004-05-16 13:39:17 UTC
these two ebuilds block bluez-sdp and bluez-pan which are no more independent downloads.  
Comment 10 Douglas Russell (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-26 11:07:53 UTC
is the rfcomm_fflush patch no longer necessary for utils?

patch to enable HCRP and dbus support in hcid

This patch to blue-utils-2.7.ebuild allows you to enable cups and dbus support.
 emerge with USE="cups dbus".

NB. dbus is custom USE flag, so is not on the official Gentoo Linux Use
Variable Descriptions list.
Comment 12 Alastair Tse (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-16 10:39:04 UTC
2.7. was added to portage by puggy. regarding the dbus support, that seems to be dependent on a non-existant ebuild? maybe we should wait till it gets more mature for some thing like that.
