Description Bastien Nocera 2007-02-25 23:31:37 UTC

When starting hidd, I get the error:
Can't listen on HID control channel: Address already in use

I don't have any Bluetooth input devices configured, but a bluetooth adapter is
present. Stock rawhide install from the 23rd Feb 2007.

I'm seeing this too with a clean rawhide install on PS3.

This problem somehow goes away with the following procedure:
1. Stop bluetooth service
2. Start hidd service
3. Start bluetooth service
4. Connect a device with `hidd --search` - PS3 BD Remote in my case

Comment 3 Florian La Roche 2007-05-28 15:35:13 UTC
Still present with a stock F7 install, /etc/init.d/hidd is the only
service failing to start by default.

I see the same thing in f7.

I was able to solve this by editing /etc/sysconfig/hidd and changing:
    HIDDARGS="-i hci0 --server"

Is this then an installer problem?

Comment 7 Bastien Nocera 2007-10-04 12:16:41 UTC
bluez-utils doesn't start hidd anymore in rawhide (since 3.13-1).
