AR3011 Bluetooth device, no driver, no firmware

Post by unifiedlinux » 2012/08/06 16:18:24

Hello everyone,

i'm new on this forum and also English isn't my main language so sorry for the spelling/grammar mistakes.

I recently (30 minutes ago) installed CentOS 6 on a desktop PC (a gaming PC, not a server), it works great but i have a few problems...

Technical specifications of the PC:
Asus P8P67 Deluxe, Intel Gigabit LAN (this works), Realtek Gigabit LAN (also works), Atheros AR3011 Bluetooth (it's soldered on the board but it's recognized as a USB device, doesn't work), Intel Core i3, 14GB of RAM, Nvidia GTX580, Atheros AR9220 WLAN PCI card (works too, it's for using the PC as a router/WIFI access point).

I already installed Debian on this PC, after upgrading to the latest (unstable) version all the hardware was detected and worked without additional configuration, but i needed to install the package "firmware-realtek" for the Realtek LAN card and the "firmware-atheros" for the Bluetooth card.

Can anyone help me making this BT card work on CentOS 6 please ?

Thanks for reading and have a nice day.

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature and [url=http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=28723&forum=54]provide more information about your system[/url] by running "./getinfo.sh driver" and showing us the output file.

Thanks for the reply, below is what you asked for... But unfortunately i really need this machine for various purposes (router/wireless access point, etc...) and my low experience on CentOS makes it very difficult and probably impossible, so i installed Debian on another HDD and i'll be using it for all the server stuff until i become more experienced on CentOS, anyway, thanks a lot for helping and have a nice day.

PS: CentOS is still a great OS even though some stuff (network configuration is very different, it feels strange to me) is hard to do.

Re: AR3011 Bluetooth device, no driver, no firmware

Post by unifiedlinux » 2012/08/11 22:28:09

Ok, so i'm back on CentOS, same problem. I think the kernel is too old and it doesn't have the "drivers" for the Bluetooth module, under Debian Squeeze (stable with kernel 2.6.x) i have the same probem : no trace of any bluetooth module anywhere except lsusb, but if i switch to the latest unstable (Sid) version and i upgrade the distro, it installs the latest 3.2.x kernel and my bluetooth module is detected, and if i install the package (firmware-atheros) or if i manually extract the firmware (from Windows drivers) and i put it in /lib/firmware then it's working perfectly.

Also, another problem i have now; i can't use a USB 3G modem, it's detected as a stupid USB flash drive and there is no "usb-modeswitch" package (on Debian, installing that package instantly fixes the problem without even a reboot), i've found the RPM and installed it, it installed correctly but it doesn't look like it does anything, it stays as a USB flash drive and no trace of usb_modeswitch in the syslog (/var/log/messages).

I solved my "usb_modeswitch" problem... for some reason the RPM version i installed didn't work but i compiled it from source and then "make install" and it instantly worked.

Where did you get the source from? Debian?

I got the sources from here : http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/ , remember to install libusb and libusu-devel for it to compile correctly.

Thanks. I think this is a good candidate for [url=http://elrepo.org]ELRepo[/url] because it has to do with hardware support.
