Hello Lirc guru. I have problems making my remote work.
kernel 2.4.2 , lirc-0.6.3pre5
WinTV Hauppauge with remote.
The kernel is compiled with i2c support.
I compile and install lirc. All OK.
I load the modules. All OK.
lirc_i2c 2560 1 (autoclean)
lirc_dev 7952 1 (autoclean) [lirc_i2c]
everything OK until know.
I start lircd.
But when I try to start any prog. which uses the remote I get at the
console (for ex xmms with lirc plugin)
" unable to open port `/dev/lirc' (Device or resource busy)
unable to open port `/dev/lirc' (Device or resource busy)
in /var/log/lircd I get
Mar 3 02:44:23 hotgeorge lircd-0.6.3pre5: lircd(hauppauge) ready
Mar 3 03:28:58 hotgeorge lircd-0.6.3pre5: foo
Mar 3 03:28:58 hotgeorge lircd-0.6.3pre5: accepted new client on
Mar 3 03:29:01 hotgeorge lircd-0.6.3pre5: foo
Mar 3 03:29:01 hotgeorge lircd-0.6.3pre5: removed client
I'm totally puzzled and frustrated (the hour of the log is real and I
started at 22 hour). Please help.
PS: reply also directly to my address if is possible
PS: other stange thing the configure script of xawtv is not able to
detect lirc ( gives a message like lirc lib not found )
