I just spent the last couple hours trying everything I can thing of
as to why lirc stopped working...
I installed 0.7.1 on my laptop connected the hardware to it and it works.
connected back to my desktop and it continues to not work.
I removed 0.7.1, reinstalled with the same steps I did on my laptop.
cp -f contrib/lirc.rules /etc/udev/rules.d
./configure --with-syslog=LOG_DAEMON --with-port=0x3f8 --with-irq=4
--with-transmitter --enable-sandboxed --with-driver=serial
then for grins I rebooted...
I then start the /usr/local/sbin/lircd --device=/dev/lircd/0
I then run irsend SEND_ONCE MYTV 4
This used to work a couple days ago....
I see the connections in /var/log/messages
accepted new client on /dev/lircd
but no IR activity on the desktop.
There is only 1 serial port in the box. The connection is tight
and screwed in.
I am open to suggestions for things to do/try to get this working again.
