New Bluetooth Kernel Module Doesn’t Play Well

Recently got a mini usb bluetooth dongle. Sad thing is that I found that it doesn’t play well in the latest version of Ubuntu. Did a quick search on Google and found that it’s because of the new btusb kernel module in the latest kernels. The old kernels were using hci_usb.

I booted up Debian with kernel 2.6.24 to verify and the dongle works perfectly. I was actually worried that the dongle I got was faulty. Now I’m contemplating compiling kernel 2.6.32 to see if the problem gets fixed. Still reading through the release notes of 2.6.32 though.

Better ideas anyone?
