    Compat-Wireless Error


    I am attempting to compile ath3k.c and get support for my Atheros internal BT module.

    linux-lhwo:/home/larry/compat-wireless-3.6.8-1 # ./scripts/driver-select ath3k
    Processing new driver-select request...
    Backup exists: Makefile.bk
    Unsupported driver

    I am not sure why this driver is not supported when I am able to use the ath9k driver for my wlan with no problems utilizing the steps listed at aircrack-ng.org with no problems. I also get the same error when trying to compile btusb.c. Any advice would be appreciated.

    what is your distribution name and version?
    what is your hardware configuration?

    I don't personally use Bluetooth, but perhaps you could get some advice if you post the output of lspci -v and lsusb.

    The ath3k (Atheros AR30xx firmware driver) is included as part of the kernel.
    Code:
    modinfo ath3k

    Further more, when I look into device configuration I see this screen shot.

    It seems to me that the device is configured and working, but I cannot be seen by or find other BT devices.

    As I would have thought. Your attached image is too low resolution to determine what you are trying to do.

    Have you tried
    Code:
    bluedevil-wizard
    The hcitool utility can be used to list your device and scan for other nearby BT devices
    Code:
    hcitool dev
    Code:
    hctitool scan
    For more info
    Code:
    man hcitool
    BTW, the 'rfkill' utility can be used to enable/disable BT devices, so worthwhile checking if soft-blocked for example
    Code:
    rfkill list
    * You may need to install it first.
