Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: bluez
The bluetooth daemon, bluetoothd, doesn't want to run for a long time.
After a while it just...dies. Sometimes it doesn't die, but it says
things like this in the log:
Can't read address for hci0: Connection timed out (110)
src/adapter.c:adapter_start() Adapter /org/bluez/16390/hci0 without an address
unable to set mode: discoverable
I have blueman and not gnome-bluetooth, but it shouldn't matter what
client I have if they just interface with the daemon. I've noticed that
if I do the temporarily visible thing (a feature not available in gnome-
bluetooth), it works once and stays discoverable for 60 seconds and then
goes to connectable, but If I try again, it just ignores it. If I try
once more, the applet locks up, probably because it got a response from
the daemon it didn't expect.
The whole reason I got blueman is that gnome-bluetooth had spotty
control over the adapter. I dodn't know how the bluetooth stack worked
at the time, so I thought the root of it was in gnome-bluetooth, but I
think it's in the daemon.
It's not easily reproducible because it seems to happen at random. Is it
a memory leak or something?
I attached a hci.log from hcidumb. The capture time was from when I
tried temporarily discoverable in blueman. I don't think it's too
I also have the output of "grep bluetoothd /var/log/daemon.log". This is
more useful, I feel.
I have Maverick. It was present in Lucid, too.
