ok so i have solved some problems. i can now get lircd and lirc_serial to
start and initialize. yay.
the main problem i have now is getting a good lircd.conf working.
the problems i have are:
i can get all the buttons set up fine, but when i test them using 'irw' most
of them (about 90% of them) dont cause any output, and so dont work. when i
try using raw mode i get the same problem, except i get a few more buttons
to work, but not enough to be usable.
also, sometimes when i am pressing buttons before assigning them, something
must go wrong, because when i start too assign them i keep getting the same
error whenever i 'point' a button press to a button name. it is:
something has gone wrong
now i know that it means something has gone wrong, but can anyone be a
little more specific so i can try to avoid it?
