It seems that almost everyone who has used FC3 with kernel 2.6.9 (or some deviant thereof) have had problems getting LIRC to work. I have tried to get mine working, unsuccessfully. I am following Jarod's guide, and have a PVR-250 using the IR receiver that comes with it. I have done the fix found here: http://bugzilla.atrpms.net/show_bug.cgi?id=317 but I have not been able to get it to work. It worked after first installing it, but died after the reboot (just like many other people have had problems with). I have played with some of the suggestions posted on the listserv as far as reinstalling LIRC, doing a "/sbin/depmod -a" and then "/sbin/modprobe lirc_i2c", and then "/sbin/service lircd restart" (I've done those 3 things in various orders) but that doesn't get it to work either. Basically, when I run "/usr/bin/irw" it does nothing. If I do it again,
Can someone please post a workaround as far as how they got it working? I'm still a n00b at this, so if you could be a bit descriptive to help with my lack of knowledge with linux, that'd be great.
