No bluetooth adapter found after update (yay)

Hi, long term Windows user, I regularly (every couple of years) try Linux for on my gaming rig. I’m amazed how far its come in the last 2 years. I did some distro hopping until I found EndeavourOS, really like it, been running it for a couple of weeks.

But this morning after doing my daily yay updates my system says no bluetooth adapter found, I’m using the module built in my motherboard, some system specs
cpu: Ryzen 7900X3D
mobo: Asus Strix b650e-i
gpu: RTX 4090
lspci below

sry for the noob Q but whats the best way to debug?

Is bluetooth enabled?

sudo systemctl enable --now bluetooth

Please post output for the following:

sudo dmesg | grep Blue
lsusb
lsmod | grep btusb
uname -a
rfkill

Also, is fastboot/faststart enabled or disabled in BIOS/UEFI?

thanks for your reply

first 2 command give me just empty
[ffletchs@BORG-Endeavour ~]$ sudo systemctl enable --now bluetooth
[ffletchs@BORG-Endeavour ~]$ sudo dmesg | grep Blue

opening the bluetooth applet just says no bluetooth adapter found

fastboot, dont see such an option

Are you on the latest or zen kernels? Try the LTS, wifi/bluetooth I’ve had break on me a number of times over the years on those. Almost everyone should be using the LTS kernel unless for some reason you can’t.

I was on ZEN (or the default one)

I’m now LTS, fresh install infact
Linux BORG-v2 6.6.11-1-lts #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Wed, 10 Jan 2024 16:41:56 +0000 x86_64 GNU/Linux

still same issue, bluetooth icon is not showing in tray, and in system settings the bluetooth applet says “No Bluetooth adapters found”

sry found the fastboot, it was enabled, disabled now, still no bluetooth

I believe this is still in testing. Maybe downgrade to a non testing kernel.

Output of inxi -Fza --no-host ? What kind of bluetooth adapter do you have?

its built-in the motherboard or chipset
Mobo: ASUSTeK model: ROG STRIX B650E-I GAMING WIFI
it was working fine for a couple of weeks and booting back to Windows it works fine

as a linux noob Im not sure how to do that :smiley:
the one installed is what the EndeavourOS installer installed

@fFletchs

Bluez 5.72-1 is now available in the repos. Try doing an update to see if it helps.

Is linux-firmware installed?

sudo pacman -S --needed linux-firmware

Your motherboard has ‘MediaTek MT7922 802.11ax PCI Express Wireless Network Adapter/ Subsystem: Foxconn International / RZ616 Wi-Fi 6E 160MHz’ which has some issues with the wifi and bluetooth.

When you found out your bluetooth doesn’t work anymore, do you remember what packages were upgraded?

Do you have any earlier snapshot/timeshift/rsync-backup of your system that you can restore to?

@ainz
just updated, still says no bluetooth adapters found

linux-firmware is installed
[ffletchs@BORG-v2 input]$ pacman -Q linux-firmware
linux-firmware 20231211.f2e52a1c-1

unfortunatly I do not know which packages, I know the time if there is a log file of updates?

no shapshots yet, Its just my gaming rig

I really appreciate you all trying to help me out with this!

You can check the logs by running the following:

awk '$1 ~ "YYYY-MM-DD" && $3 == "upgraded" { print $4; }' /var/log/pacman.log

Replace the YYYY-MM-DD in the above command with the date on which you performed the update.

duh, since I wiped the system when I installed the LTS kernel I lost the log…

The WiFi chip is a media tech MT7922 802.11ax. It should use the mt76 kernel module.

Edit: It seems to be listing it correctly.
Edit2: I assume that Bluetooth is on the same chip?

@fFletchs

Do you have dual boot with Windows?

ok I’ve done that and enabled wifi in Windows (it was disabled), bluetooth still works fine in Win, also tried to disable and then enable in bios both Bluetooth and Win, stll no bluetooth in EndeavourOS

You may want to make sure you boot into windows and turn off the fast startup feature on Windows under power management before shutting it down and then boot into Linux.

wtf now its gone in Windows too, tried installing latest bios, and load optimizied defaults, still no bluetooth

I’m out of ideas :frowning:

So in Windows it doesn’t show in your hardware devices?

Edit: In device manager does it show?

Edit: If it does show the WiFi I would remove it and reboot into Windows and let it find it again on it’s own.
