(This is similar to the July "GNOME-BLUETOOTH ON FEDORA" thread. That 
one died off however, and we do not know if the initiator got it working 
or not...)

Running a fresh install of FC4 with 2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 kernel on an i586, 
I'm trying to see a Logitech Mobile Freedom bluetooth headset through a 
USB bluetooth adapter. This same adapter/headset pair works well on a 
Windows98 PC.

I followed the instructions in 
up to the "hcitool scan" point, meaning that I have the software and 
that I point to a custom pin-script. The system can see my USB Bluetooth 
         $ hcitool dev
                 hci0    00:0E:A1:32:9E:1F
but cannot connect to the headset:
         $ hcitool scan
         Scanning ...
         Inquiry failed: Connection timed out
no matter whether I turn on the headset in the normal or in the 
"pairing" mode.

I then did a
# hciconfig -a

And this is as far as I can walk alone. :(
The RX and TX do keep increasing....

Any ideas what I should do?
