Linux Bluetooth stacks
It came to my attention while approving submitted links the existence of two Linux Bluetooth stacks.

The first one is BlueZ, the Official Linux Bluetooth protocol stack. It is an Open Source project distributed under GNU General Public License (GPL). BlueZ kernel is part of the official Linux kernel since version 2.4.6. BlueZ was originally developed by Qualcomm Incorporated.

Supported on BlueZ:
  • Bluetooth Core (HCI device and connection manager)
  • HCI USB, UART, PCMCIA and VHCI (Virtual HCI) drivers
  • L2CAP
  • RFCOMM
  • BNEP
  • SCO

    The BlueZ user space packages provide support for:
  • SDP (Service Discovery Protocol)
  • PAN (Personal Area Networking)
  • LAN (LAN Access over PPP protocol)

    The other package is a Bluetooth Protocol Stack for Linux developed by Nokia Research Center in Helsinki and released under GPL. Its name is Affix.

    Supported on Affix:
  • General Access Profie
  • Service Discovery Profile
  • Serial Port Profile
  • DialUp Networking Profile
  • LAN Access Profile
  • OBEX Object Push Profile
  • OBEX File Transfer Profile
  • PAN Profile

    According to the homepage, Affix was tested for interoperability and worked ok with:
  • Nokia Bluetooth Phone 6210 with Bluetooth battery pack,
  • Digianswer stack for Windows
  • Compaq iPaq
  • Bluetooth stack for Palm OS
  • Ericsson phones (T68)
