System hangs on reboot at starting bluetooth

Asked by williway on 2009-10-06

I've just installed Ubuntu 9.04 for the first time on my new PC and everything was going well until it restarted my PC. Grub was doing a "checking file systems" and everything went well until it got to Starting bluetooth. It now just hangs there and does nothing. I do not have bluetooth on my PC is there any way I can disable this test so that the system boots up. This is my first time using Ubuntu. Any help is much appreciated,, Thanks

I have an AMD Phenom 9650 Quad core 2200mhz cpu on a ASROCK A780GM-LE AIO motherboard with 4GB of RAM. No prior operating system on the hdd..

Reboot your system and press ESC to enter Grub menu. Choose the recovery mode, and on terminal type the following command

sudo pico /etc/init.d/bluetooth

and at the end of the file (before '# vim:noet' if present) add the following syntax

exit 0 (zero not O)

Ctrl + X and answer Y to save changes, reboot, and everything should be fine.

You can stop the service using GUI by going to System --> Administration --> Services and after unlocking, you can un-check the "Bluetooth device management" service, and it will disabled.

Good luck.
