Bug Description

Strongly suspect this is related to this bug:

There was a big push to file new bugs for this since some were fixed, so I'm doing just that.

Please note that there is a bug in linux-firmware-nonfree. In order to get even this far, I had to manually symlink /lib/firmware/bcm2033-fw.bin and /lib/firmware/bcm2033-md.hex to BCM2033-FW.bin and BCM2033-MD.hex. Separate bug, separate issue, but just the same, if you're attempting to reproduce my results, that's something to keep in mind. This also required that I install bluez-compat. The hci device never gets created otherwise:

Hi Tony,

Please be sure to confirm this issue exists with the latest development release of Ubuntu. ISO CD images are available from . If the issue remains, please 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 627024

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.
