Default Ubuntu 9.10 NMR - Hardware Device Config Check - 10-31-2009, 12:41 PM

Hi -

I've just managed to get UNMR 9.10 installed on my mini-9. It's been a real struggle (not booting from USB flash, getting Swap size right to enable suspend to work, and installing wireless drivers) however now most things working. I'm left with one problem Bluetooth.

Is there anyway I can check from the OS whether or not there is a bluetooth adapter installed on my mini-9? Its a new (factory refurbished) model bought via e-bay. The trouble is I didn't check whether the bluetooth was working with Win XP before I installed Ubuntu so I don't know whether the hardware is installed/working or not?

I've tried looking for Ubuntu utilities/Linux commands that will allow me to check but can't find anything. The only solution I can think of is taking the mini-9 to bits to check whether the card is installed or not. Is there an easier way I can check by looking at some hardware config/driver settings? With thanks for your ideas and suggestions.
