I'm new on this mailing list, but using lirc from last year, when I by
Pinnacle tw card with rs232 remote control reciever, that was on Mandrake
Linux 9.1 with 2.4.22 kernel, and everithin worck fine, but now when I
start using Mandrake 10.1 with 2.6.8-xxx kernel, i find diferent
configuration of Lirc modules in kernel.
What is the point:
In old Linux a have /dev/lircd socket and /dev/lircm pipe and sym link to
/dev/ttyS0 like /dev/lirc, here when using with 2.6 kernel with new
lirc-2.7.1 only for first time afther installation and startig lircd
-p0777 cen use irw, but only like root, afther reboot and starting lircd
from rc.local, when thry irw, lircd died, I was hand made /dev/lirc and
start lircd but now everithing works but without /lev/lircm, only with
/dev/lircd & /dev/lirc, where is /dev/lircm, why they dont exist are is
not nessesery now couse everithin works.
Sorry on my Tarzan english, maybe you understand me.
I have something to say...
