ok, i have managed to compile this driver. more later :-)
    
So out of curiosity, are you the original author of the driver, or are
you just trying to clean up the source asrock or whomever released to
compile for others as well?

  
i am the developer of an mediacenter os (www.openelec.tv) - and i am also not an c, c++ coder (so i hope i find some people here for help). also i dont have an ASRock board that needs this driver. But there is any interest to have this driver included in openelec.

So i can test this driver not directly - but tomorrow an user of openelec can do this for me.

in the beginning of this year was any interest of an lirc driver for this chipset from many XBMC (www.xbmc.org) users. So ASRock have it managed that (i think nuvoton) has released an driver for Ubuntu [1] with sources packed in an *.deb file. but building the sources are crap, because of many hardcoded paths and ubuntu like things (for example: #include "/usr/src/lirc-0.8.6/drivers/path/to/file.h"). you can this see in the original package. it seems the original author dont want spend many time to this driver.

because there was an splitting from one *.c sourcefile to two files between version 1.0.1 and 1.0.4 i have give up to integrate this driver in the lirc sources.

if you want, i can contact asrock if i can get the name and email adress of the author so i can ask him what for a license the driver have, or if he can release a new version with an license (gpl) header.

greetings

Stephan
