lirc on Debian is in pretty sorry shape, as far as I'm concerned.
I've exchanged email with the maintainer offering to take over
maintenance of the package myself, but he doesn't want to give it up.
He is (slowly) making progress on it, though.
I'm running on Debian sid with 2.6.37 and lirc I build from his svn
repository (svn://svn.debian.org/pkg-lirc/) and it works. I wouldn't
recommend trying to run squeeze on a kernel from lenny.
