@Kulle
Please state which Porteus edition you are running. Someone who has bluetooth working on your platform will give you a hand...

Regards!

Edit: Most probably your bluetooth daemon is not running. To use it you will need a bluetooth dongle or similar device.
If your system uses initd try as root in a console "/etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth restart".
You should get as response "Starting Bluetooth services: bluetoothd hciconfig sdptool hciattach" or similar B)

Good luck!

Check if your rc.bluetooth is executable. I guess it is not.
If so do as root a chmod x to /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth.
Good luck!
