BT module in Slackware

Link to this post 08 Nov 11

Now we have something to work with and can see that rfkill is enabled for multiple devices.

You can cat /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.2/0000:04:00.0/ieee80211/phy0/rfkill2/stat to see if the wifi radio is on.

But with rfkill it becomes easier, use "rfkill list" to see the states of each available device which may include your bluetooth adapter, once you figure out the names for each you can type "rfkill unblock {device}" to turn a radio on and "rfkill block {device}" to turn a radio off.

After you test and confirm the rfkill command you can add a script into your rc.d scripts to start each radio on boot.

thanks Matthew. BT is still has problem. But, as of now, my goal is to use/access my wifi connection, and that is done by enabling the things using "rfkill".
