Hey, guys. I'm having an issue getting lirc working on my box. I'm running Ubuntu Breezy Badger with kernel 2.6.12-10-k7. I followed the directions given here in order to get lirc up and running:


However, attempting "modprobe lirc_sir" gets me this:

FATAL: Error inserting lirc_sir (/lib/modules/2.6.12-10-k7/misc/lirc_sir.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

[4545990.816000] lirc_sir: Unknown symbol lirc_unregister_plugin
[4545990.816000] lirc_sir: Unknown symbol lirc_register_plugin

It appears this guy has seen this problem before and had some sort of patch to it; does anyone know about this?


The general consensus I've seen from my google fu seems to be that lirc started having this issue around the time the 2.6.11 or 2.6.12 kernels rolled out. I've searched on this list for solutions, but the closest I've seen is this, which says to configure LIRC with the --with-driver=any flag; considering that I'm grabbing a package, I don't know that I have that option. Does anyone here know how I should approach this? Thanks!
