    Hi Florian,

    finally I got mod_mce and lirc_mod_mce working.

    But I get kernel panics :-( similar like the one described in:

    http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1790724&forum_id=588332

    also after using the keyboard and mouse for some seconds...

    see a screenshot of the error under:
    http://anywhere.ch/img_2069.jpg

    My System:
    # uname -a
    Linux mediacenter 2.6.23.15-137.fc8 #1 SMP Sun Feb 10 17:48:34 EST 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    any glue how to fix this?
    under which kernel do others run moc_mce with success?

    thx and regards

      Hi Reto,

      I posted the original kernel panic message. I resolved this but forgot to post a follow up. In my case kernel panic seemed to be caused by running a 32 bit kernel on a 64 bit system. I now use Fedora 8 and the latest x86_64 standard distro modified kernel and everything works fine.

      Hi Ben,

      Wasn't aware that my CPU also supports 64bit... according x86info it does...

      not sure if the BIOS Supports it... download now the x86_64 Fedora 8 and dry to install it tonight.

      thanks for the input.

      Hi,

      it's me again :-)

      also just for the protocol... also installed x86_64 Fedora 8 and now lirc_mod_mce is now working fine with the standard distro modified kernel.

      Florian thanks for your work :-)

      regards
