My computer boots very slow and I think I've got the problem. This is what dmesg says:

[   13.812524] Bluetooth: hci0 command 0x2010 tx timeout
[   97.224904] Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.3

It looks like the bluetooth is responsible for it. As I don't know how to repair it and I don't need bluetooth at all, I decided to tell Ubuntu not to load it. So I've been looking for a tool to do that. Everyone talks about "bum" but I can't install it. I looked for another choice, "rcconf", but I can't find it neither.

riqui@riqui-u:~$ sudo apt-get install bum
[sudo] password for riqui: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package bum

Do you know what am I doing wrong?

If you are running Ubuntu zesty bum is not available to you, however if you are using Ubuntu xenial, vivid, trusty or precise you can install it using apt-get, first make sure your sources are up to date:

sudo apt update

then try installing it:

sudo apt install bum

Remember some of versions which I mentioned are outdated like: vivid and precise.

  • I am running zesty. Thanks. I'll look for another solution.
