Been a couple of years since I used Gentoo.
Board is an older  Epia mini-itx Eden processor, and I plan to have this 
working as a MythTv frontend.
Kernel was done 'the lazy way' using genkernel.

I want to use a bluetooth dongle, to pair my phone and camera with this box.

Plugging in the dongle produces the following:

usb 2-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
usb 2-2: New USB device found, idVendor=0a12, idProduct=0001
usb 2-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
usb 2-2: Product: CONWISE B
usb 2-2: Manufacturer: Conwise Technology
usb 2-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

and (as per Gentoo bluetooth wiki page), testing for the dongle in 
another way:

 cat /proc/bus/usb/devices | grep -e^[TPD] | grep -e Cls=e0 -B1 -A1
T:  Bus=02 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=01 Dev#=  3 Spd=12  MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 1.10 Cls=e0(unk. ) Sub=01 Prot=01 MxPS=16 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=0a12 ProdID=0001 Rev= 1.34

So, from the above, I can see the dongle is present, however, bluetooth 
tools does not see the device.

For example:

hcitool dev

Any ideas what I can be missing here?
