First of all, thank you very much for replying. I have gone back and
followed Jarod's guide for setting up Lirc and unfortunately nothing
happens when I run /usr/bin/irw. It just returns to the $ prompt :(
Jarod's guide refered me to /var/log/lircd to check for any problems.
However, that file does not exist on the system, which makes me a bit
suspicious. But when I check the system that lirc is still working on,
there is no /var/log/lircd there either. Weird.
Like I said in my original mail, Lirc was working until I setup NFS on
the backend server and mounted the video and tv directories there on
this machine. Do you think this could have something to do with my
problem? If you have any other suggestions for approaches to debugging
this problem I would, again, very much appreciate it.
