Thanks for the answers, I do have the tools installed, but it doesn't
detect my bluetooth device (on IBM T41 laptop).
Could it be that I don't have kernel support for it? I checked my dmesg
output, and couldn't find anything about bluetooth. Does anyone know
what I should check for?
I have new issues now after a dist-upgrade, it seems that the kernel
doesn't have apm support (is that right?) or is there a way to enable
it? Perhaps that should be a seperate email.
Thanks for your help
