Well, that obsoleted quickly!
I mean the
alarm-bluetooth-raspberrypi package. There’s finally a more or less native support for bluetooth in Arch ARM kernel and libraries, so there’s no need for external packages or weird configurations any more. Here’s how to take it in use:
- Remove the line
dtoverlay=bcmbt(if present) from
/boot/config.txtand add the following line to the same file.
- Make sure that
enable_uart=0is also in
/boot/cmdline.txt, remove all references to
bluez-utils-compatpackage with standard
bluez-utils, unless you really need the old utilities. The system does not need them anymore to work.
- Enjoy the working bluetooth!
