I've installed 0.8.0 with audio_alsa as my driver, but when I look in
/dev/ the only device I see is /dev/lircd, there is no /dev/lirc/ nor

I am receiving these problems with my onboard sound (alsa drivers
snd-intel8x0 and snd-ens1371, I'm not sure which driver it's using, but
I'm guessing it's the intel8x0)
I know that the receiver is properly connected because when I press any
button on my remotes, I hear feedback through the speakers, and when I
run arecord, garbage only comes up when I press a button.
So, any ideas as to how to get irrecord to see that there's hardware,
and do I need any more devices to be created?
Btw, I'm running Gentoo, if that makes any difference, and when I do
lircd --driver=? it lists audio_alsa, so I know that the driver is installed.

How are you trying to run lircd?
I'm using alsa too and run it like this:
/usr/sbin/lircd -d hw:0@...
and similarly for irrecord.
Another point that caught me was the volume had to be un-muted (of
course) and set to the _minimum_ possible volume (zero) for every mixer
element, for irrecord to get anything. I think thats because my IR
diode is 5v powered, into the mic-in... Anybody have any comments?
