How to rebuild bluez
How can I rebuild bluez? Is it possible? Lets just say I want to change something in avctp.c for example. I download the latest bluez release from their website and make the change I need to make. Now, how do I get the changes to be effective; i.e. what do I need to do to rebuild bluetoothd?
Note: I am using Ubuntu 12.04
The quickest way to do this is just to remake the whole bluez package with the following commands:
./configure make make install
After that, you can run the configured bluetoothd executable form the /src directory by using ./bluetoothd, or replacing the bluetoothd in /usr/sbin with the bluetoothd executable in /src so that every time the bluetoothd command is passed, the new configured executable is called.
Hope this helps.
