All right, so I downloaded 0.8.0 and installed it. Now, wehn I try modprobe
lirc_sir, it tells me that the device or resource is busy and the module
cannot be inserted.
I know I had to change a setting in my BIOS to enable the IR settings. It
was something about allowing the onboard serial using address 0x2f8. I
thought I had it set correctly; could there be a problem here?
