Description David 2012-10-13 22:00:00 UTC
On my Samsung NB30 netbook, the bluetooth device is being recognised by
FreeBSD, but it does not work properly.  The tray icon for bluetooth is
showing, in LXDE.

The "messages" log file shows these entries regarding Bluetooth:

ubt0: <Broadcom Corp Broadcom Bluetooth 2.1 Device, class 224/1, rev 2.00/3.43 addr 2> on usbus2

WARNING: attempt to domain_add(bluetooth) after domainfinalize()


This is my first attempt at creating a bug report for FreeBSD.

How-To-Repeat: Install PC-BSD 9.1-RC2 on the Samsung 30 netbook.
The Bluetooth will not work properly, despite being recognised.

Could you expand on the "not working properly" part? Are you trying to
use an input device via Bluetooth?

The Handbook [1] and these pages [2][3] have helped me get my Bluetooth
keyboard working on 9-STABLE.

Please keep bug-followup@ CC'ed otherwise your response won't get noted
on the PR.

I don't use PC-BSD myself, but it looks like the 9.1 release includes
some sort of Bluetooth Manager [1].

In any case, you could also try following the steps in the Handbook to
see if there's really a problem on FreeBSD or not.
