I've noticed a problem attaching a bluetooth mouse. (or enabling
bluetooth at all)
I have a laptop that I don't depend on, and use for testing, or
playing around. It's a converted Chromebook, an Acer C710.
In the past, I've used bluetooth, primarily for a mouse. Converted it
to use the rawhide branch a while ago, and everything seemed OK.
My use case for it has changed, so it has spent more time plugged into
devices, including a trackball, so I'm not sure exactly when this
At some point, the bluetooth mouse stopped working, and I was unable
to turn on the bluetooth adapter on the laptop at all. I figured that
it was my fault, I had done some questionable removals of packages to
get things to upgrade. No problem, I'll wipe and reload, and get it
While booting off the F33 USB drive, no problem, I was able to use the
mouse. Installed, and booted up the system, same.
After I did a full system upgrade, it is back to not working again.
If I boot from an older kernel (the 5.8.15 from the install image) no problem.
If I boot from the 5.10.10, the bluetooth module does not work.
I've seen the same results with KDE, gnome, and XFCE, so I'm pretty
sure it's not the DE.
I get the following:
dmesg | grep hci0
[ 11.031856 ] Bluetooth: hci0: don't support firmware rome 0x11020000
Like the following shows: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=210681
Not sure where else to go from here, wait until the fix is committed
in the kernel?
If a bug report needs to be made, if someone could point me in the
One irony of this is that I ran the tests for the 5.10 kernel, but
never tried to hook up a BT mouse, so I didn't think to mention it.
