[mythtv] No luck with LIRC...

Hi Pete,

I don't seem to have a /dev/lirc/0  (wouldn't it show up below if I did?).

Tried to insmod lirc_dev and it didn't find it.  I searched and found the .c
in the drivers/lirc_dev directory.  Went there and did a make there (make
install too but even after that I had to do an insmod lirc_dev.o  for it to
find that module).  Anyway, I can now load EITHER insmod lirc_serial OR
lirc_dev but not both.  Depending on the order, I either get "Device or
resource busy" (lirc_serial first) or "init_module: Input/output error"
(lirc_dev first).  Do you have both modules installed together?  If so, in
what order?  Maybe each module needs to be associated with a unique device
(like "lircd" and "lird" or "lirc/0")?

Any more tips would help!
