Just a note to the list that I finally got this going by re-installing LIRC
and going through the setup script. The error that was generated about
/dev/lcd0 missing was correct.
David's instructions worked for LIRC,
*To get lirc to automatically detect the display as an LCD instead of a VFD,
you need to use lirc from CVS. Specifically, you need revision 1.32 or
later of lirc_imon.c. If you don't want to use all unreleased lirc, just
drop that one file into lirc-0.8.4a. I'm actually using it with lirc-0.8.3.
*Jean, I'm not really sure what happened with your install* *it looked like
it went well but it never created the /dev/lcd0?
Thanks for all the help and guidance.
