[mythtv-users] Lirc Support

Further investigation now leads me to the fact that LIRC support is
compiled into this particular RPM. Cruising through previous messages,
I find that a few people have had similar problems as I described
below. I get the following error in my mythfrontend log file:
mythtv: could not connect to socket
mythtv: No such file or directory
Research into this tells me that these messages are lirc related.
I have requested verbose stdout from mythfrontend but it doesnt
indicate what socket it couldn't open or what file or directory it is
Can anyone help ?
