    Default Macbook + Bluetooth

    I'm currently running Backtrack 2 Final with VMware fusion on my Macbook (not pro). Everything seems to be working fine and VMware recognizes other plugged in devices (flash drives, webcam). However, whenever I launch VMware my bluetooth shuts down and gives me this message: "Bluetooth not available". Also, it won't turn back on until i restart my comp. Anyone have similar problems or have any ideas? Thanks.

    You don't happen to have vmware automagically grabbing the bluetooth adapter do you? It will disappear if vmware starts using it. You can't share usb devices between the two.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
