I have a UIR. I got it from a friend, and I know it works, because I tested it
using uICE (a windows program for infrared receivers).
But I can't get it to work in Linux. Here's my setup:
Asus Pundit (2.4 GHz Celeron, 256 MB, 160 GB HD, sis 651 graphics)
A homebuilt UIR connected to the first (and only) serial port (ttyS0).
Mandrake 9.2, and I downloaded LIRC (and lirc-remotes) 0.6.6 using urpmi.
Here's my /etc/sysconfig/lircd:
# Customized setings for lirc daemon
# The hardware driver to use, run lircd --driver=? for a list
# Hardware driver module to load
# The device node that communicates with the IR device.
# if you are using lirc_serial, set DEVICE to /dev/ttyS[0-9]
# where 0-9 is the serial port your IR receiver is plugged
# with devfs enabled
# without devfs
# Serial port for the receiver (for serial driver)
# COM1 (/dev/ttyS0)
when I do:
# /etc/init.d/lircd start
I see lircd running:
3447 ? S 0:00 lircd --driver=irman --device=/dev/ttyS0
I also tried sending the IR command to the receiver, and it replied with OK,
so I guess everything should be working allright.
irw doesn't give me any replies when I try my remote(s). but no error messages
irrecord doesn't seem to be working (I did shut down lircd before I tried
# irrecord --device=/dev/ttyS0 --driver=irman /etc/lircd.conf
irrecord: could not init hardware (lircd running ? --> close it, check
Feb 15 20:24:29 garfield irrecord: readlink() failed for "irman"
Feb 15 20:24:29 garfield irrecord: No such file or directory
Feb 15 20:24:29 garfield irrecord: could not create lock files
Am I right that I don't need the lirc kernel drivers?
Can anyone help me with my configuration, is it correct?
I haven't got a clue which config i should use for my remotes, I have a couple
of remotes, a philips vcr remote for instance. How can I tell which config I
any other help/suggestions are greatly appreciated!
I really hope anyone can help me with this, because I really would like this
to work onder linux, so I don't have to use Windows anymore :)
Thanx in advance,
