Re: [opensuse-factory] Bluetooth keeps failing in Tumbleweed, including the current version 20171125, Linux 4.14.1-1-default #1 SMP PREEMPT
Hello Knurpht:

Thanks for the kind suggestion, I did update the /etc/default/tlp setting as
you suggested, but I don't think tlp is enabled on my system:

$sudo tlp-stat -s
[sudo] password for root:
--- TLP 1.0 --------------------------------------------

Notice: tlp.service is not enabled -- invoke "systemctl enable tlp.service" to
correct this!

$ bluetooth
bluetooth = on
$ wifi
wifi = on
$ wwan
wwan = none (no device)

Your hint sounded plausible initially, but now I'm skeptical that tlp was the
culprit.

With best regards:

Bill

Hello Oliver:

Thanks for your advice, we are now tracking this now on
https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1070434.

Regarding bisecting the kernel,  have been running Linux on this machine
with unstable bluetooth since October 21, 2017, the machine's specs per the
vendor are  https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05787871. Is bisection

supposed to isolate the transition from broken to fixed (or vice versa if
we have a regression). If all states are broken, how will I bisect?  The
hardware is pretty new hence the need for a new kernel (4.6+ according to

iwlwifi is the wireless driver for Intel's current wireless chips. For older
chips, there are other drivers:

The wlan and bluetooth chip according to the linux drivers is:

8265, REV=0x230

I dual boot into windows and the bluetooth seems reliable under windows, so
I am ruling out hardware issues. On a side note, I put Bumblebee on this
system last night (tainting my kernel)  to address screen flicker, but the
bluetooth issue predates that.

With best regards:

Your XHCI is failing catastrophically. The failure of Bluetooth is
among the expected consequences. The best way to debug this is to
bisect the kernel. Could you do that?
And please make a bugzilla entry for such issues.

What I needed to get bluetooth back working on TW on my HP laptop:
Setting BLACKLIST_BTUSB to 1 in /etc/default/tlp
Using rfkill to unblock the BT device.
