Bug Description

I believe I experience a kernel bug whenever I enable/turn on my bluetooth headset. I tried Ubuntu's latest git kernel (Ubuntu-2.6.27-9.19) after having this issue with the current stable kernel 2.6.27-9-generic and get the same error.

I didn't get this error/bug with the newest kernel from

Note: I use bluez 4.23 from because I can't get my headset to work with with v4.12... It doesn't work with 4.23 either but it was worth a try.

Please see attached file and let me know if you need anything else.

What's the status of this issue? There hasn't been any activity here since 2 months... Is there any newer kernel version which would fix the problem?

This is not a bug in the linux-meta package, moving to the linux package.

Hi test34,

This bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 306089

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.
