This is how i got irda working with the Toshiba 1800-100 and Linux
with Debian etch. I assume that this works with other Toshiba laptops
and other distributions.
Install irda-utils. Then create a script with:
/sbin/rmmod -f smsc-ircc2; setserial /dev/ttyS2 uart none ;
/usr/sbin/modconf --load-only smsc-ircc2 ; irattach irda0 -s; irattach
Run this script as root when you want to use irda. You will see with
ifconfig a new interface irda0 (the script does irattach twice because
the first time it fails in my system...).
Then get your activated irda device close to the sensor and that's it.
I can use wammu with my Nokia 6021 to see the agenda, and I can also
mount the directories using obexfs.
I have in my fstab the line
obexfs#-i /media/mobile fuse user,fsname=obexfs#-i 0 0
You need to create the directory /media/mobile first. Then mount
/media/mobile will mount your mobile phone through irda. I can read
and delete, but not write for some odd reason...
I hope this helps.

This situation where ttyS2 has to be disabled before the module
will work is quite sub-optimal :-/ The module ought to handle
it, but I don't know how to fix it.
It appears on all Toshibas with the ALi M1533/M1535 bridge I think,
can you confirm this with some dmesg printouts? Should say
"Toshiba laptop with ALi ISA bridge".
We'd really need that datasheet to fix this properly I believe.
