AllLinuxDevices: Letter to the Editor: Open Source Project Was First with Linux Bluetooth Stack

Dec 13, 2000, 20:54 (1 Talkback[s])

"This letter, disputing a press release from Rappore Technologies claiming to have released the first Linux Bluetooth protocol stack and SDK, was written by Phil Verghese of RidgeRun, We did some followup with both companies, the results of which are included in an editor's note at the end of the letter."

"We saw the recent press release on your website from Lineo and Rappore Technologies claiming to have the first Bluetooth protocol stack for an embedded Linux OS. Lineo and Rappore are not the first to release a Bluetooth stack and there's an active Open Source project for Bluetooth on Linux hosted at http://developer.axis.com. RidgeRun ported the Open Source Bluetooth protocol stack to both the ARM and MIPS platforms, and demonstrated Bluetooth running on our embedded DSPLinux at Comdex last month. We incorporated all of our changes into the Open Source project and we expect to continue to add enhancements and changes as Bluetooth evolves."
