rfcomm - big trouble and a non working bluez in arch

my goal:
bluexmms: http://linuxbrit.co.uk/bluexmms/
- libxmms-ruby and bluexmms is built and installed

bluetooth setup (what i did):
- configured /etc/bluetooth/*
- loaded all modules
- use kernel 2.6.
- have bluez-stuff installed (1:1 from stock)
- had to write a /bin/bluepin instead of the broken /usr/bin/bluepin
- loaded hcid and sdpd
- hcidtool scan to get MAC of my mobilephone

the trouble: rfcomm:

[root@Asteraceae /]# rfcomm
Can't get device list: Operation not supported
[root@Asteraceae /]# rfcomm connect 0 00:0E:00:48:00:00 1
Can't create RFCOMM TTY: Operation not supported
[root@Asteraceae /]# rfcomm bind 0 00:0E:00:48:00:00 1
Can't create device: Operation not supported

the only things on the web are:
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/foru … um_id=1883

i suppose that there is trouble with the arch 2.6. kernel:

[root@Asteraceae kernel26]# more config | grep TTY
CONFIG_IP_NF_MATCH_PKTTYPE=m
CONFIG_BRIDGE_EBT_PKTTYPE=m
# CONFIG_BT_RFCOMM_TTY is not set
CONFIG_PPP_SYNC_TTY=m
CONFIG_ISDN_TTY_FAX=y
# USB Bluetooth TTY can only be used with disabled Bluetooth subsystem

especially:

# CONFIG_BT_RFCOMM_TTY is not set

:-(
is there any normal reason why we have this disabled?

Err this may not help but it looks like you need to compile your kernel  smile

HTH

Mr Green

CONFIG_BT_RFCOMM_TTY  to y ???

yep, of course - i'm already compiling since 2 hours and it will take some more (since it is done remotely on my old machine that is 366mhz :-) ) ... but in the morning i will most probably have it working --- my question is more general: why handicapping the stock-kernel on this option if it is not needed

thanx for answer - greetings

Re: rfcomm - big trouble and a non working bluez in arch

ok, recompiling the kernel with ...RFCOMM_TTY enabled made rfcomm working --- i enjoy now to remote-control my music with my mobilephone :-)

-> so any reasons why not to enable this option? or should i post a bug?
