I am not sure if anyone here can help me, as it may be
a Mandrake issue, but I just thought I would give here
a try first :-)
I am running Mandrake 9.0 (with stock kernel), and
using the Lirc RPM they provide with the distribution
(0.6.5). Mandrake's stock kernel builds the serial
driver into the kernel, as opposed to making it a
module. My IR receiver is on /dev/ttyS0. I've always
had the serial driver as a module before.
PROBLEM: The lircd daemon starts fine from the
/etc/init.d/lircd file, but when I try to test my
remote's config file with the 'irw' program
(/etc/lircd.conf, and it's a file I generated from a
while ago), it seems to kill the lircd daemon (and
does not remove the lock file from /var/lock/subsys).
I know that when Lirc is built with the serial driver
built into the kernel, the following warning comes up
during the 'make' process:
#warning " Your serial port driver is compiled into "
#warning " the kernel. You will have to release the "
#warning " port you want to use for LIRC with: "
#warning " setserial /dev/ttySx uart none "
I do not know if this has anything to do with the RPM
itself (the way it was compiled?), or is it has to do
with the serial driver being built into the kernel.
I could try to recompile the kernel with the serial
driver as a module, which has always worked for me
before, but if that's not the problem, then I'd prefer
not to do that.
Any light you can help shed on this matter is
