    Galileo running Linux didn't recognize a BlueTooth XBee connected to it


      Hello Makers,


      I can control the Galileo via PuTTY, and the XBee I'm using is something like this: Bluetooth Bee HC-05(Master/Slave) [BTBee-HC-05] - $17.00 : ElecFreaks Store.

      I didn't have an XBee Adapter, but I connected the 3V3, TX, RX and GND to an Arduino Nano and then I can use my Android phone to communicate with Nano via bluetooth, so I assume that this method would work for the Galileo.


      However, after I followed the steps here: Intel Galileo - Configuring the Serial Port in Linux - Malinov Family Web Presence, which I think will allow me to use the TX and RX on the Galileo, I tried several commands including hcitool and hciconfig, but apparently there was something wrong:


      root@clanton:~# hcitool dev


      root@clanton:~# hciconfig -a

      root@clanton:~# hciconfig hc0 up

      Can't get device info: No such device


      By the way, although I heard that it might not truly reflect the situation, part of results of the dmesg command were:


      [16853.919675] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.16

      [16853.941407] NET: Registered protocol family 31

      [16853.946179] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized

      [16853.962390] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized

      [16853.967414] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized

      [16853.998963] Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initialized


      Does anyone have any idea about which direction I can go next? I'm totally lost now.

      Thanks in advance!!
