I need help installing and configuring lirc on a new Fedora Core 4 system
using a Streamzap remote. The system is an AMD64 box.
I've been following Jorad's wonderful Myth TV on Fedora HOW TO document.
Thank you, Jarod!
Everything has worked great until I tried to implement lirc with Streamzap
drivers. After I installed lirc using yum as directed, I tried to do a
modprobe litc_streamzap and go a fatal error saying that driver was unknown=
So I did a "yum remove lirc", followed by a "yum remove lirc-kmdl-$KVER".
Then I downloaded the lirc-0.8.0 tarball from lirc.org. After extracting, =
ran setup.sh and selected the Streamzap remote, then ran configure, make an=
Next I ran "chmod 666 /dev/lir*".
Then I ran "modprobe lirc_streamzap" followed by "modprobe "lirc_dev". (Th=
lirc.org documentation says I need both drivers.)
Next I edited /etc/modprobe.conf and inserted the line "alias char-major-61
lirc_streamzap" at the end of the file.
Everything seemed good so far. No error messages.
Next, I ran "/sbin/service lircd start" and received error message "lircd:
Undeterred, I tried "mode2", which told me:
mode2: error opening /dev/lirc
mode2: No such device
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Same results.
"/sbin/modprobe -l | grep lirc" shows:
"/sbin/lsmod | grep lirc" tell me:
lirc_streamzap 49540 0
lirc_dev 50656 1 lirc_streamzap
"dmesg | grep lirc" gives me:
lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, at major 61
usbcore: registered new driver lirc_streamzap
lirc_streamzap $Revision: 1.15 $ registered
"ls -l /dev/lir*" shows:

I been fighting this for many days. I've read boatloads of posts about lir=
and tried everything that seemed related; but nothing has changed the mode2
error message. If I could get mode2 to run, I am sure I could fix the
mssing sbin directory entry and run irw successfully.
