Adding Bluetooth Low Energy dongle / installing bluez
Per Johan Groland
Is there any information available on how to set up a Bluetooth Low Energy USB dongle on the Omega and install bluez?
Hi @Per-Johan-Groland. BLE drivers and documentation will be made available in the next release of the Console in the next couple of weeks.
ETA on BLE drivers? :smile:
I'm trying to use the BLE dongle but so far I can't see the device.
I have installed bluez-utils and bluez-lib using opkg install, and tried a lot of things like changing the /etc/config/bluetooth file, but whatever I do, when I run
I get: "Device is not available: Address family not supported by protocol"
When I run
nothing seems to happen
and when I run
I can't write anything in the console anymore and have to ctl C it.
I got my Bluetooth dongle today.
Looking forward to official instructions on how it should be used.
Tried installing the bluetooth kernel extensions and am getting errors:
opkg install kmod-bluetooth_6lowpan ... Collected errors: * satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for kmod-bluetooth_6lowpan: * kernel (= 3.18.20-1-7bed08fa9c06eb8089e82c200340ec66)
I think I need to try using
opkg --force-depends installthe extension, but i'm no hurry to do it as I don't quite know what to do with Bluetooth once I have it all working. :)
PS: I'm running
Ω-ware: 0.0.5 b234
--force-dependsand promptly ran out of space as expected. now cleaning up.
