usb0 and bluetooth are orthogonal.

If I disable usbnet, will my Bluetooth still work?  Would I have to change how udhcpc is invoked?

usb0 is the usbnet interface.  If you're not using usbnet, you can disable its auto-starting by removing the "auto usb0" line from /etc/network/interfaces.

I have a gumstix 400 w/ Bluetooth, and I have followed the Networking instructions

and have successfully set up Bluetooth networking b/w gumstix and my Windows XP system.

My question is about the usb0 interface.  Why is it needed (since I am using Bluetooth) and how it relates to Bluetooth if it is needed?

The udhcpc running on gumstix shows up as follows on ps -ef:

287 root 368 D udhcpc -b -p /var/run/ -i usb0

This is what confused me in the first place - that the DHCP client is using usb0 but I am connecting to gumstix over Bluetooth.

Thanks in advance -
