I tried yast-2; it told me lirc was already installed; yet I could not 
find any hint of any lirc mods - no kernel mods, no daemons, nothing - 
Did a lot of google searching and a lot of reading; and elected 
to follow the least confusing howto. 

I ran a yast upgrade and it upgraded the kernel; now lirc-0.8.0 
does not work; lirc-0.8.1 is needed. 

All I want to do is make it so that when mythtv changes channel
to record a program, it also lites up an irblaster to make the satelite 
box change to the proper channel. (dish network)
