I can't tell if you've installed from a package or you
compiled. If you compiled, you need the sources and
not the headers. It'll compile with headers but it
won't work.

Until you get it working take out or comment out the
commands out of the rc.local.


#modprobe lirc_serial
#cd dev
#ls -al | grep lirc

What did you get, I'll assume /dev/lirc0

Do the set serial uart=none command (can't remember it
off the top of my head).


#/usr/sbin/lircd --device=/dev/lirc0

or replace /dev/lirc0 with whatever you see

Then do a 

#ls -al | grep lirc

You should see the lircd

Do you irrecord based on /dev/lircd

/sbin/modprobe lirc_serial
