    [SOLVED] Critical problem with bluetooth pairing produces complete freeze of system


    Whenever I try to pair mobile phone (NOKIA E71) with linux my computer freezes completely. The mouse can be moved for a few more seconds while all the applications become unresponsive - Only solution is to reboot a computer with a reset button. Nothing is logged - LEDs on keyboard don't blink. I have tried finding out the root of a problem with hcidump but nothing unordinary gets reported (Pairing a device at address..... and that is it). Bluetooth works in Windows so I don't think it is a hardware problem.

    Can someone give me some direction how can I get some debugging information or sth that will help me solve the problem.

    I am using Gentoo Linux (x86_64) with latest gentoo-sources-2.6.29-r5 and bluez 4.39...

    Thank you in advance.
