I am trying to use lirc_mod_mce, but when I do a modprobe, I get this error:

FATAL: Error inserting lirc_mod_mce (/lib/modules/2.6.22mythbox/lirc_mod_mce.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

and dmesg reveals: lirc_mod_mce: Unknown symbol lirc_get_pdata

Any idea how to fix that? is it an lirc version issue?

I am using lirc 0.8.0 that is installed from Debian.
Kernel version 2.6.22
