possibly it's bluez libs being out of date ..
i guess there was more pulled in with bluez-openrc and bluez-tools (namely bluez and libical)
give me a day or two and i'll update the base modules and maybe include the bluez stack..

ok, base modules updated with added bluez, bluez-openrc, bluez-utils, bluez-tools, and libical..
didn't have much luck with bluez-tools, so included bluez-utils which seems to be working..
after starting the bluetooth service:

Code: Select all

[guest@porteus ~]$ bluetoothctl
Agent registered
[bluetooth]# power on
Changing power on succeeded
[CHG] Controller F0:42:1C:FB:C1:AA Powered: yes
[bluetooth]# devices
Discovery started
