As a 1010 owner since March of 2009 I can assure you your machine does not have bluetooth. While it will show it as being on under several versions of Linux it shows it as disabled when you go to preferences in all of them because it does not exist. Sorry.
You are right about the lack of activity on the forum lately. I think it has something to do with the lack of activity in the production of new Dell netbooks to generate activity.
While I still use my 1010 a great deal as I travel alot; if it were not for Joli and Ubuntu's support for the GMA graphics I would have little to talk about the 1010 as little would be happening to generate something to comment about. Its still a good little machine; and the newer machines are not much better (if they are at all). fdalbor
Oh yea; there is no risk free video with the 1010. It is possible though. Its one reason I always install Linux on my 1010 to SD cards or USB drives instead of the hard drive. If it crashes it only takes a little while to reformat the card or drive and try again. Joli 1.2 is the easiest to get video working and I have had good results with 10.04 (long term version). They have a habit of changing the terminal script on the Poulsbo wiki at Ubuntu. The new script has not worked that well for me; but I have had others who have had good luck with it.
If you do try Joli 1.2 enable the HTML5 add on and the Java add on. They both help the video playback while streaming video's. Good luck.
