    Does anyone have any information about firewire in OpenBSD? I've tried searching and nothing comes up, is anyone working on it, or is there any code completed?

      tdeval@ is working on it, but it seems he's very busy, so it's been quite a while since the last time a commit was made in the firewire code.

    Did you get my ugly looking blue prismII usb wireless device ?
    I sent it to Theo last month.
    been wondering if it was of any help.

    It seems to be supported, (3.5) but i'll send some anyway :)

    /bsd: ugen0 at uhub0 port 2
    /bsd: ugen0: Cambridge Silicon Radio Bluetooth USB Adapter, rev 1.10/8.28, addr 2

      ugen is used for any usb device other drivers don't pick up. Bluetooth is not supported at this time in any event.
