I think that your problem is that there are duplicate kernel modules
installed by the ivtv driver and the kernel. With kernel 2.6.15.x you
need the ivtv driver series 4.x. Here is a script that
(http://www.linuxowl.com/patches/duplicate-ko) shows you which modules
have are duplicated. I simple move the kernel's version out of the way
and then run depmod. If you also have a bttv tv card then normally the
tveeprom modules needs to be retained. It's a good idea to check what's
in /dev you should have lirc0 (and lircd). I use:

kernelrelease=${1:-$(uname -r)}
export CFLAGS="-O3 -march=pentium4 -mtune=pentium4 -pipe" &&
export CXXFLAGS=${CFLAGS} &&
./configure \
   --prefix=/usr \
   --infodir=/usr/share/info \
   --mandir=/usr/share/man \
   --datadir=/usr/share \
   --sysconfdir=/etc/lirc \
   --localstatedir=/var \
   --libexecdir=/usr/sbin \
   --disable-manage-devices \
   --with-syslog=LOG_DAEMON \
   --with-x=/usr/X11R6 \
   --with-driver=hauppauge \
   --with-major=61 \
   --with-port=none \
   --with-irq=none \
   --with-kerneldir=${kernelrelease} \
to configure lirc for a PVR-350.
