[mythtv-users] Help with LIRC / Homebrew receiver

ok...After a total of 2 weeks, I have my mythbox up and and running
completely. My last thing to do before I can move it over to the main
tv is get my remote control working.
I have my homebrew receiver plugged into the only serial port on the
back of my machine (com1).
I then issue the following commands:
setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart none --> everything seems to go well here (no
errors in /var/log/messages)
/sbin/modprobe lirc_serial --> again, everything seems ok (or at least
I don't get any errors).
/sbin/service lircd start
This is where things seem to stop working. If I do a "/sbin/service
lircd stop" or "/sbin/service lircd status", i get no response.
However, in the "services" section in KDE, I says it is not running and
when trying to start it, it says "lircd failed. The error was:"....but
thats it...no description / help.
I looked at the lircd service script and I believe it is looking for
/etc/lircd.conf to be defined. I don't have such a file. Can someone
email me / post theirs so I know what is supposed to be in it?
I should add that after the module is loaded, I get a device /dev/lirc0
created, and when I try to start xmode2, I get "error opening
/dev/lirc". Should I make a symlink from /dev/lirc to /dev/lirc0?
