bluetooth hci0: firmware: failed to load brcm/BCM20702A1-0a5c-21e6.hcd
Dear all, (debian/sid)
Because I had this error in journalctl:
Mar 09 15:17:09 pluto kernel: Bluetooth: hci0: BCM20702A
Mar 09 15:17:09 pluto kernel: Bluetooth: hci0: BCM20702A1 (001.002.014) build
Mar 09 15:17:09 pluto kernel: bluetooth hci0: firmware: failed to load brcm/
Mar 09 15:17:09 pluto kernel: bluetooth hci0: Direct firmware load for brcm/
BCM20702A1-0a5c-21e6.hcd failed with error -2
Mar 09 15:17:09 pluto kernel: Bluetooth: hci0: BCM: Patch brcm/
BCM20702A1-0a5c-21e6.hcd not found
And because my BT was working... But not so well...
And after taking advices on #debian-next...
I followed the instructions there:
and simply copied the file:
After that, and some reboot, I didn't have any bluetooth at all anymore:
The only thing BT in journalctl was:
May 30 17:18:03 pluto dbus: [system] Failed to activate service
'org.bluez': timed out
And no trace anymore of the mere string "BCM20702" (ignore case option...)
I did even thought that it had "burnt" my chipset
So I removed the file BCM20702A1-0a5c-21e6.hcd altogether,
And now I do have BT again;
Though minimalist and not working well...
(actually can't be used, broken; can be use 1 minute, with difficulties...)
I would appreciate help to have that working.
