There is a Ubuntu installation guide on MythTV.info that include lirc from
source. Here is the address:
Works great for me. I don't know about using the packages, but needed to
use the source for my PVR-150. The only problem with compiling lirc from
source is the extremely long wait I had to endure to create all of the
linux modules, which took roughly an hour I believe on my Athlon 2500+ and
about two hours on my Duron 650Mhz.
