I'm having a problem loading lirc after doing some updates. Specifically:
I have 1 PVR 250 and 1 PVR150MCE running and I'm using the onboard IR for
When I reboot my machine the lirc_i2c module will not load automatically.
The automatically logs in as the mythtv user. I get an entry in the
messages file that says:
Apr 17 20:16:23 myth lircd: lircd: can't open or create /var/run/lircd.pid
Apr 17 20:16:23 myth lircd: lircd: Permission denied
Apr 17 20:16:23 myth lircd: lircd startup failed
If I log in as root and do:
# depmod -a
# modprobe lirc_i2c
# service lircd start
Everything works.. But ONLY as root. If I try to do the same thing I get a
message after the depmod command that states that I don't have permission to
access a temp file.
FATAL: Could not open /lib/modules/2.6.11-1.35_FC3/modules.dep.temp for
writing: Permission denied
I've tried (to no avail) changing some permissions.. But that just causes
I suspect that this issue is not actually permission related (since I
haven't changed users or permissions since I originally installed the system
Is there something I'm missing?
Have I left anything out that might help figure this out?
Any ideas would be appreciated.
