I was trying to get LIRC working and failed. Need a little help.
I ran mode2 and did not get any data back so I think I probably
have some configuration problems.
I read some conflicting info as to what the /dev/lirc should
be. Should this device be it 61,0 or 61,4?
I'm testing this on an IBM ThinkPad T30 laptop. I thought I should
load the lirc_sir drivers, but documentations only talks about
lirc_serial. I assume it is SIR since that is what I use
with IrDA. I assume the default setup.sh of 0x3e8 irq 4 is the correct
one to use for the the built in IR port. The original BIOS
setting was set for 0x2F8 irq 3, but WinLIRC only worked
with 0x3e8 so assumed that the BIOS settings were not relevant.
My test box is a pretty standard Red Hat Linux 9.0 default kernel
with NTFS support turned on.
Any help is appreciated,
