well, while i'm waiting to hear from ken about what he meant by backporting the bluetooth module to 2.6.17, i made another attempt at mmc booting with the  2.6.18 kernel (rev 1200).

got this error:

hm, ok.  i thought ken was recommending i take a recent bluetooth  
module and port it to work on the 2.6.17 kernel (which to me meant  
modifying some driver code).

ken, can you clarify a bit?

thanks,
greg

Hi Greg,

The term back ported generaly means to go back in revision.

You can use svn to check out a partectular revision od the
build root.  I would reccommend removing your currect
build root before "back porting"

so i was able to get revision 1092 to boot via the mmc card,  
however,
it seems that bluetooth functionality is not available.  any ideas?

# hcitool scan
Device is not available: Address family not supported by protocol

the bluetooth module changed a while back (since rev 1092).

back porting it to the 2.6.17 kernel should be straight forward.
