I grabbed lirc-0.7.0.pre6, compiled it, make'd it, etc.
All is great again!
Thanks! My Wife thanks you. My kids thank you.
You know, I started installing mythtv just for a fun project - to learn
about linux, etc. However, it ended up fundamentally changing the way
we watch tv, and when you have to go without it, even for a short while,
you realize how fantasic a project (or collection of projects as it turns
out), it is.
Thanks to the many primary contibutors, the other developers, and this list
for a great collection of software.
