The problem: No output from mode2
The system: PCLinuxOS with kernel 220.127.116.11.
lirc-0.8.1-0.20060628.1.pclo2005.mde installed using Synaptic.
Homebrew ir receiver.
I'm doing everything logged in as root.
Running statserial I can see DCD toggle, so the hardware seems to be working.
I setup lirc with the following sequence
ln -s /dev/lirc/0 /dev/lirc0
setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart none
modprobe lirc_serial irq=4 io=0x3f8
No errors are reported, dmesg shows
lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, at major 61
lirc_serial: auto-detected active high receiver
lirc_dev: lirc_register_plugin: sample_rate: 0
Then I run
mode2 -d /dev/lirc0
which sits silently, returning nothing.
I've been going over and over this, but I'm stumped as to the next
