You mentioned in an answer to another mail that one must not use SuSE
kernels? Is that right? Why is that? Can you give me any hints for I am quite
a newbie to linux and lirc...

S.u.S.E. provides patched kernels with their distribution. These kernels
contain special features that are not in the standard kernels at that
time. That means that anything can happen if you try to compile LIRC
drivers for these kernels.
E.g. the current kernel for S.u.S.E. 7.0 already includes devfs support
AFAIK. But the kernel interface for it is a different one than the
interface used in 2.4.x kernels. That leads to errors when compiling LIRC
which is one of the more harmless symptoms.
