I currently have lirc 0.6.6 working with my tv card using
lirc_gpio. The problem is that the receiver only accepts the remote that
came with the card, so I built a serial port receiver on http://www.lirc.org/receivers.html and
have it working fine using winlirc.
However when I try and load the lirc_serial module it says
that I must compile my kernel with serial support as a module option which I
have done, and the "setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart none" trick does not work
either. The first time I try the setserial thing dmesg
reports a non existent resource at 0x3f8 which is rubbish.
There are many people having this problem on the list but I
could not find an answer. Does anyone know how to fix this?
This is on a fresh install (not an upgrade) of Redhat 8.0 with kernel 2.4-19 (from source, not rpm), and lirc compiled
