I've used lirc for a long time some time ago but since I upgraded to kernel 2.6.15 I never manged to make it work again. I decided to tackle this issue again.

Right now I can make the lirc_serial module go up which gives me a /dev/lirc/0 device but if I "cat /dev/lirc/0" and press buttons on my remote, I got nothing.

I'm using Gentoo. Rigth now I have a 2.6.16 kernel and lirc-0.8.0.

Can someone please help me as I am really out of ideas on what to try.
