Oct 1 12:32:55 MythTv lircd-0.7.2: lircd(atiusb) ready
When I start irw and go back to the console I started "lircd -n" on I see
MythTV ~ # lircd -n
lircd-0.7.2: lircd(atiusb) ready
lircd-0.7.2: accepted new client on /dev/lircd
lircd-0.7.2: could not get file information for /dev/lirc
lircd-0.7.2: default_init(): No such file or directory

I'm not sure where my USB device is... I've tried various ls's in /dev to
find it to no avail. But I gather this much from what you're saying: "# ln
-s /dev/lircd /dev/lirc" or am I way off?

I'm not sure what you mean here, but I have built lirc with "atiusb" in the
LIRC_OPTS in my make.conf.

Yea, I do have udev...
