Here is where I am at so far. In my /etc/rc.d/rc.local I made these changes...
# This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
# You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't
# want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.
mknod /dev/lirc0 c 61 0 -------------I added this line in hopes it
would attach to a line in my modprobe
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset s off
# I added these next two lines
/usr/sbin/lircd --device=/dev/lirc0 --output=/dev/lircd
In my /etc/modprobe.conf I have added this line:
alias char-major-61 lirc_mceusb
After implementing these changes, I can do a cat /var/log/messages and
see what I showed you before about the driver being loaded for the USB
Microsoft IR Transceiver. But I also get this listed:
Mar 13 18:54:11 mythfrontend lircd 0.7.0: accepted new client on
Mar 13 18:54:11 mythfrontend lircd 0.7.0: could not open /dev/lirc0
Mar 13 18:54:11 mythfrontend lircd 0.7.0: default_init(): No such device
Mar 13 18:54:11 mythfrontend lircd 0.7.0: caught signal
I am however getting errors on boot in the Show/Hide Details window.
Where can I view the errors that it is showing me? They disappear to
quickly to read. I am pretty sure the info I want to see (about the
errors on boot in Show/Hide window) is not listed in
