HOWTO RPI3 bluetooth

Postby Huulivoide » Sat Mar 19, 2016 9:01 pm

I uploaded the following packages to AUR to make Bluetooth work on the new RPI3.

* hciattach-rpi3: hciattach from bluez-utils patched to work with rpi3
* pi-bluetooth: Firmware files, udev rules and systemd services to initialize the hw

Code: Select all
# Yaourt used for reference. Replace with your favourite AUR helper
yaourt -S pi-bluetooth
sudo systemctl enable brcm43438.service
sudo reboot

Thanks for this reference, works for me as well.
Still need to learn a lot about BT on Linux, but now at least the basic prerequisites are met.
