I an running a lirc install with four different devices, /dev/lirc0-3, =
and each has its own daemon, and its own socket, /dev/lircd0-3.
All the devices and sockets work, and each correspond to the right piece =
of hardware. However when I start IPTY with the command "ipty =
--socket=3D/dev/lircd[n] [lircrc file] -- [program]" I get a "could not =
connect to socket" error. IPTY only works if i create a symbolic link =
from one of the sockets to /dev/lircd, which is fine but that means I =
can only use whichever piece of hardware is linked at that time, as IPTY =
completely ignores the socket switch. Oddly enough if you use the wrong =
syntax, for example put "ipty --socket:" instead of =
"--socket=3D[whatever]" then it complains, so I am completely stumped.
I am using Fedora core 5, fully updated to kernel version =
126.96.36.199_1.2111_FC5, on i686 archtecture with the latest ver of lirc =
from the atrpms repository (version 0.8.1, release cvs20060325_58). I =
am using four streamzap remotes, which as i said work perfectly =
independantly, tested with irw and mode2.
Each remote has its own service by the way, incase thats important, and =
the lircd startup options are:
lircd --permission=3D0666 --driver=3Ddefault --device=3D/dev/lirc[n] =
--output=3D/dev/lircd[n] --pidfile=3D/var/run/lircd[n].pid =
I have tried running with a single shared config instead of four =
separate ones, and without the connect flag, all to no avail.
I have tried to be as detailed as I can, but if I have left something =
out just let me know.
Thankyou very much for reading this, this is a project of great =
importance to me and I would really appreciate your help.
