Package: sysv-rc
Version: 2.88dsf-13.1
Severity: important

Following a clean install ( hence surprised at the debconf data at the end of
this report) on this Eeepc 701 with a valid /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf  about 1
in 4 times the  /dev/rfcomm0 is not created.

'dmesg' simply omits the 'rfcomm initialized' messages, whereas the console
output states "Starting bluetooth: bluetoothd rfcommCan't open RFCOMM control
socket: Address family not supported by protocol " (obtained from cat

The other 3 times the system starts correctly.

This has also been seen on a clean install of a P4 2.8GHz system ( 1 in around
8 failures) and an updated Lenny to Squeeze P4 3GHz system ( again 1 in 8

Startup DOES seems to running in the correct order, that is all dependencies
have started prior to bluetooth being started.

In all case re-running /etc/init.d/bluetooth start does create the /dev/rfcomm0
