The "LIRCD_OPTS" is normally the character device that you want the
daemon to listen to (/dev/lirc/0 or the like), while "LIRC_OPTS"
would be "--with-driver=hauppauge" or similar, telling the compiler
what options to compile in. "with-driver=hauppauge" tells it to
compile the i2c support, without it it will normally compile only the
I don't know where FC4 stores these options but it looks like you
have found the LIRCD spot, but you have put the LIRC option there.
Try putting the character device from a "ls -al /dev/lirc*" listing
in the LIRCD opts and testing with irw.
Looks like you are very close though.
