There's already some RF hardare out there, x10.com sells some. I have
their silly "MP3 Remote" here, and their reciever looks like it should
be pretty easy to write a lirc driver for, but i haven't had enough
giveashit to mess with it much other than seeing if it by some
coincidence works with an existing driver. It was a freebie. fwiw, it
looks like the reciever decodes the rf with a PIC and sends hex values
over regular rs232.
No reason why someone couldn't design a simple rf reciever that would
detect on/off pulses from a transmitter and twiddle lines on the serial
port just like the lower end ir recievers do. I have no idea what the
FCC restrictions would be in the US.

I am installing my linux box (it's a linux mandrake 8.1), and a part of it is lirc.
The package (0.6.4) copmiled well on linus'es kernels, but now I am using the mandrake default
The package compiels and installs but it does not load the drivers needed, and it need some
more modules? The problem is devfs. basicly how do I insert a lirc moduls with a kernel comfigured with devfs?

1) the stupid lirc mailing list archive didnot write you mail, so please contact me privatly.
2) how did you fix the problem? (you reported this but about 4-3 months ago?
