Thanks for the replies. I got things going and I guess it helps that I've
tried this a coupld of times. Here are my steps as best as I can remember.
If anyone needs help with this drop me and email (atkinss at
telusplanet.net) and I'll see what I can do to help.
1. Installed Gentoo and got a basic system running. With Kernel 2.6.3-r1
(check Gentoo on how to do this)
2. emerge genkernel
3. Put lirc in USE (under /etc/make.conf)
4. emerge lirc
6. run genkernel all --menuconfig
a. Included IrDA support under Device Drivers/Networking/IrDA as modules.
Include everything just in case.
b. under Device Drivers/Character Devices/Linux InfraRed Controller: module
GPIO also I set a maximum of 1 LIRC device
c. under Device Drivers/Multimedia Devices/Video for Linux. I added as
modules everything in here just in case
d. Don't forget to include file system/network and anything else nesassary
to get your system working.
7. Once compiled run lilo (if your using grub don't ask me because I run
8. Reboot. (Cross fingers)
9. If everything comes up properly great. cd /etc/modules.d/ edit aliases
file and add these lines.
alias char-major-81 bttv videodev
alias char-major-81-0 bttv
options bttv radio=1 tuner=2 gbuffers=8
options tuner debug=1 type=2
alias char-major-61 lirc_gpio
10. Run modules-update
11. You should now be able to modprobe lirc_gpio and if you get errors
double check your aliases.
12. From here I followed the MythTV Lirc setup from chapter 8.5 on.
Just so everyone knows I haven't completed the MythTV install yet but at
least when I run irw it returns my remote buttons as it should. Again if I
forgot a step or if any one thinks I can help please give me an email and
I'll see what I can do. Thanks to everyone who posted both past and

You will need lirc 0.7.0pre2 or newer I believe... I think I wound up
compiling locally instead of using the ebuild (I'm on Gentoo, but
running kernel 2.4.20-r8.
