Bluetooth on Beagle board


The beagle board I have is Revision B7 and has the linux kernel booted on it successfully. I have enabled the
bluetooth related options when building the kernel using make
menuconfig. Now I want to install bluez in this linux kernel.

After untaring the bluez-4.36.tar.gz file in the /tmp/bluetooth
directory, I tried running ./configure.
This is the error I get:
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... configure: error: newly
created fi
le is older than distributed files!
Check your system clock

What is the reason for this error? Other than enabling bluetooth, I
am using the default configuration for the omap3 kernel.

I am new to embedded linux and do not know much of cross-compilation.
Do we need to use the cross-compiler for installing bluez on beagle
board? Any inputs related to this would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.


- move to a newer kernel (e.g. 2.6.28)
- with that kernel you can install bluetooth without compilation:
issue the command "opkg install bluez" (without the quotes).

Good luck. Frans
