[SOLVED] AR9462 Bluetooth not working
I use an AR9462.
On Arch WiFi and Bluetooth work. After i migrated to Parabola the Bluetooth stops working. After i removed the your-freedom and your-prifacy and switched back to the arch-linux kernel it is still not working.

that device is not listed on h-node; so it may not have free firmware available - probably, linux-libre removed the firmware package you had installed before

I Installed the Arch-Linux kernel and adjust the bootloader but it is still not working.
Do i have to build a costume kernel if i will use this device?
if it worked before, then you should not need to do anything
special - most likely, the firmware package for that device
conflicted with linux-libre and it was removed when you
installed linux-libre - installing the arch kernel would not
re-install everything that linux-libre removed
