It’s near impossible as far as I can tell! Well, not easily done anyway!
Here’s how I managed to get bluetooth working somewhat in Red Hat 9.
- I installed the bluez-utils and bluez-libs rpms using apt-get.
- I followed Tom’s advice in his lengthy article. I didn’t have to recompile the kernel however as it contained the rfcomm module already.
- I was able to connect the phone to the PC through /dev/rfcomm0 by using
rfcomm connect 0 <my phone code>. I tried to use that device to create a ppp link by doing
/usr/sbin/pppd /dev/rfcomm0 10.0.0.1:10.0.0.2but pppd returned immediately, and Syslog reported: “pppd: Serial line is looped back.”
Bah! I’m going home!
