I'm running gentoo 2.6.13-gentoo-r3.
I emerged lirc. My IRD receiver is an 'old' irdman serial port.
So, I did a 'modprobe lirc_serial', and got these errors in dmesg:
lirc_dev: Unknown symbol class_simple_device_add
lirc_dev: Unknown symbol class_simple_destroy
lirc_dev: Unknown symbol class_simple_device_remove
lirc_dev: Unknown symbol class_simple_create
lirc_serial: Unknown symbol lirc_unregister_plugin
lirc_serial: Unknown symbol lirc_register_plugin
Way back when (a week ago....) I was
trying to get the DVB device drivers working on/in this same kernel (HD-5000
card), I saw similar errors related to the 'class_simple/*' series of calls,
and ended up thinking they were related to changes in the 2.6.13 kernel
and device drivers....
So, just for fun, I downloaded lirc-0.7.3pre1.tar.bz2,
ran setup.sh, chose 'Other serial devices', then 'Irman / UIR', then all
the defaults; then ran 'make' and then as root make install... Then
did a 'modprobe lirc_serial' and still the same dmesg errors.....
