Porteus 5.0 and Bluetooth.

Is Porteus supposed to work with the Bluetooth device in a laptop?
Possibly there is no driver supplied with Porteus.

Having installed Porteus 5.0 onto my laptop, which has a Bluetooth device,
I placed "bluetooth" in /boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg but saw an error message when I clicked on Bluetooth icon on desktop:
"No adapters available".

Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu 14 both work with the device, as I'm able to receive files.

Is it to keep Porteus to the smallest file size possible?

could be missing firmware..
maybe:

Code: Select all

# lspci | grep Bluetooth 
to get an idea of the hardware..
and

Code: Select all

$ getpkg linux-firmware
will get a module of the entire firmware package from slackware( much of which is included in the 000-kernel module already)
another approach could be to try a newer kernel from this topic: Porteus Kernel Builder
