Hello all,

I am installing mythtv on Fedora Core 4, AMD 64, nVidia, PCIe, SATA...it
runs good so far.

I am trying to setup a USB UIRT. When I plugged it in, I ran dmesg and it
was recognized as ttyUSB0:

usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 2
usbcore: registered new driver usbserial

lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, at major 61
bttv: driver version 0.9.15 loaded

When I ran irw, I got no response. So I tailed /var/log/message and got:

mythtv-server lircd-0.7.1[4880]: accepted new client on /dev/lircd
mythtv-server lircd-0.7.1[4880]: could not get file information for /dev/lirc
mythtv-server lircd-0.7.1[4880]: default_init(): No such file or directory
mythtv-server lircd-0.7.1[4880]: caught signal

This looks like irw is trying to connect to /dev/lirc. There is not one.
So I created a link ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/lirc

Gives me this now in /var/log/message:

mythtv-server lircd-0.7.1[5318]: lircd(any) ready
mythtv-server lircd-0.7.1[5318]: accepted new client on /dev/lircd

mythtv-server lircd-0.7.1[5318]: this device driver does not support the
new LIRC interface
mythtv-server lircd-0.7.1[5318]: major number of /dev/lirc is 188
mythtv-server lircd-0.7.1[5318]: LIRC major number is 61
mythtv-server lircd-0.7.1[5318]: check if /dev/lirc is a LIRC device
mythtv-server lircd-0.7.1[5318]: caught signal

Can anyone help? I am at a wall.
Steve
