[Bug 1049266] Re: pairing Wii Balance Board not supported in 4.101


Any luck getting this upstream in either bluez or gnome-bluetooth?
Rather not patch sources if it can be helped.

  pairing Wii Balance Board not supported in 4.101

Status in “bluez” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The following code in 4.101 checks whether a device should receive the
  special Wii passkey:

  	vendor = btd_device_get_vendor(device);
  	product = btd_device_get_product(device);

  	device_get_name(device, name, sizeof(name));
  	name[sizeof(name) - 1] = 0;

  	if (g_str_equal(name, "Nintendo RVL-CNT-01") ||
  				(vendor == 0x057e && product == 0x0306)) {

  However, this does not work for the Wii Balance Board, which reports
  its name as "Nintendo RVL-WBC-01". I'd suggest to add a second
  comparison with this string.

  P.S. I haven't found any working upstream bug tracker, which is why I
  report this here, hoping that somebody from upstream will pick it up.
