Well I've done all my work thus far in Mythbuntu.  AFAIK the IR blaster
is already working in FC12.  In fact, that was one thing I used to
troubleshoot my setup.  I actually got the FC12 Live CD to pick up the
HDPVR and its IR chip.

If you're able to use Fedora 12 as a starting point I guess all you'd
need to do is configure lirc.
