Summary: internal bluetooth interface BCM20702A0 not recognized
and loaded by the kernel
Classification: openSUSE

OS/Version: openSUSE 12.2
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None

I've a notebook with an embedded bluetooth interface.
The interface is from Broadcom (Broadcom BCM20702A0, ID 0489:e031 Foxconn/Hon
Hai) but not (yet) identified by the kernel.
Also, the interface needs a firmware and the logic of loading it is also not
(yet) in the kernel - that's what I understood from below ;-)

There are hints in the web, that the interface works in principle:
but is not yet in the kernel:

I'm running 12.2 with kernel 3.4.28-2.20-desktop x86_64 and I had a look for
kernel-source-3.7.10-1.1.1.src from 12.3, but I can't find any relevant changes
in /usr/src/linux/drivers/bluetooth/btusb.c

So what's about the bug, when will it be solved and patched in the kernel?

Thank's a lot


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. switch on bluetooth (hardware switch)
2. have a look in /var/log/messges
3. have a look in KDE bluetooth integration
Actual Results:
bluetooth interface is not identified, no module loaded
KDE bluetooth integration says 'no bluetooth adapters have bin found'

Expected Results:
bluetooth interface should be identified
firmware should be loaded

when I try the hints from
copy firmware to /lib/firmware
modprobe btusb
switch on bluetooth (hardware switch)
use ./
echo "0489 e031" >> /sys/bus/usb/drivers/btusb/new_id
bluetoothd recognized the interface
and I able to connect a bluetooth device (e.g. mobile phone) with KDE bluetooth
