Connecting a Nokia 7650 to Linux via Bluetooth

And for my next trick I shall get my 7650 talking to Linux via the Bluetooth dongle that arrived in the post yesterday.
This howto is useful, and links to the Bluez howto too. Unfortunately it all looks rather beta and requires the user compile and patch code.
‘s funny, the CD that comes with the dongle just asks you to run setup.exe (although I couldn’t get it to see my Nokia when I ran it in WinXP last night..)
So, as ever, Linux needs to catch up in this area but then Microsoft and Apple are catching up with Linux in others. (No, I refuse to get into a fight with you Mark on this.. hehe!)
