I have been trying to get LIRC working in the latest kernel, with no success. I have it working in 188.8.131.52-pclos2.bfs. Seems that everything else works fine. Is there a trick to use the driver that is in the kernel? As far as I know after kernel-184.108.40.206-pclos1-1-1pclos2010.i586.rpm ( http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,68130.msg555550.html#msg555550
) the driver was built in to the kernel.
Excerpt from dmesg seems like it is loading ok.
