    I get the following error upon loading irmp3d
    "lirc_mod_poll(): lirc returned read error"
    lirc is working fine irexec performs what it's supossed to and irmp3 works fine with manual commands.

      could you please check if lirc is still running after that message has been printed ?

      could you also check if the user launching irmp3d has the correct permissions to use lirc ?

      Yeah I got it lircd was cutting out on me config file error but now I have a different problem, none of the mixer controls work they were working before in debian but I changed over to CORE and now they don't

        is your config file the same ?
        are the other keys working ?
        do you have write acces to the input device ?

      Got it for some strange reason the vol channel of the mixer doesn't adjust the volume its the pcm channel that does  (I use the Yamaha opl3-sa for future reference) quick change to the config file and I was in business. now all I need to do is build a case and aquire a keypad then presto jukebox
