Install dialog off your distro CDs and run the LIRC setup program.
It's very straightforward after that and should get you up and running
quickly. You may need also to create a udev rule to ensure the LIRC
nodes are recreated for you at boot (you can search the list for this
info). You need to make sure that your /etc/lircd.conf file is the
correct one for your remote, and that you have a ~/.lircrc (and MythTV
version) to make sure the remote is usable.
