Has anyone had any success with bluetooth using openembedded?  I was able to
connect my gumstix to the pc using pand manually the first time after a new
flash and was able to ssh to my gumstix and it worked fine for about 5
minutes the connect hung up.  Now I can't even connect manually using the
process below:

On PC:
#pand --listen

On gumstix:
#pand --connect 00:11:67:24:05:BD
#ifconfig bnep0

On PC:
#sudo ifconfig bnep0
#ssh root@

Now when I try this I get
#ifconfig bnep0
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device

and when I do
#ifconfig -a

bnep0 doesn't even come up anymore.

I've been struggling to get pan working with bluetooth on buildroot and I
recently decided to give openembedded a try hoping to get it to work.  I'm
using the rev 308
pre-built image from and my gumstix is a basix
400xm-bt.  Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
