If you are running Gentoo then be thankful the patch for the Xbox DVD dongle is in the portage. Add this line to /etc/make.conf
Now just run
# emerge lircd
Now use the config from the bottom of the page. The next thing you need to do is test to see if it works. Because it is using a new driver if you have it plugged in then you need to unplug it and plug it back in. Now start lircd
# /etc/init.d/lircd start
and watch to see if your button presses are showing up!
