Hi. I've just subscribed to this list, trying to get some desperate help.

I have a homebrew serial receiver, probed to work in another computer. Lirc compiles without a hitch (tried both the ubuntu 0.81+cvs package and the official 0.82), loads ok with a:

lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, at major 61
lirc_serial: auto-detected active high receiver
lirc_dev: lirc_register_plugin: sample_rate: 0

but then nothing happens in mode2, or xmode2, or anything. I read about some people having the same problem with an nForce chipset (which I think I have, since mostly everything in my motherboard is nVidia - asus p5nd2-sli). They said they solved it by loading the 8250_pnp module, but apparently in the stock ubuntu kernel it's compiled in, not as a module, so I can't try unloading it. I don't know if this is a bug in Lirc, so I'm not sure if I should file a bug.

Any help would be appreciated!
