Hi Brad,

It seems that some emails have been re-sent from the list server - the one you answered I actually sent on Sep29, and since have everything working. Yes, bnep0 comes up after connecting to the PAN. I configured the Mac with a fixed passkey and also put that key into the hcid.conf file. I also have got stereo audio working to my Motorola S9 headset at the same time, controlling it from a ssh shell logged into over the BT PAN. So that part of my system is now in place and I can move on to the application.

And there I have another, very different problem: sometimes boa comes up, sometimes it doesn't. When I run it manually iI get gethostbyname: (something) currently unavailable. If I have a Wifi connection up at boot then gethostbyname succeeds from the prompt but I still do not get boa running. Yet sometimes it has come up by itself.. /var/log/boa/ is empty.



Thanks,

You can probably ignore the boot-time complaints about bnep0. I
probably shouldn't have 'auto' in there at all, but I haven't tested
with and without it.

You said you paired your mac, so what happens when from your mac you
click the bluetooth icon, select your gumstix, and choose 'connect to
network'?

That's when the bnep0 ethernet device should appear and the network
startup stuff fires off.

Hi,

I am getting very close to running, but this last hitch has me
stumped. I need to be able to point my laptop/handheld browser at the
Gumstix boa server via a BlueTooth PAN hosted by the Gumstix. But
boot processing of /etc/network/interfaces ends complaining that
interface bnep0 does not exist. I checked and re-checked every step
in the wiki how-to on BlueTooth, the PAN section, and still do not
see what I am missing. I also manually run modbrobe bnep and that
appears to work, in that I get no console output, but ifconfig still
does not show any bnep interfaces.

Any ideas/help will be gratefully appreciated.
