I'm running mandrake 9.1 ... I just bought an actisys ir blaster. Its a 200L. 
I compiled lirc 6.6 picking the actisys 200l and com port 2 ( since this is 
the port it seems to work on in windows..) then i changed the line in 
modules.conf to alias char-major-61 lirc_sir 
depmod -a
then i did a setserial /dev/ttyS1 uart none
i figured i should use ttyS1 since i'm using com2.
then i did a modprobe lirc_sir
then i said /usr/local/sbin/lircd
then i did irw
and nothing happens it just drops back to the command line. I check my syslog 
and messages files for messages and there nothing there. Not a thing from 
lirc.  I'm interested in knowing what line other people with the acisys have 
in there modules.conf file when it comes to lirc. Also what am i doing 
wrong?... I have every other part of my mythtv setup working except this. 
I've never had much luck with lirc before. So if anyone has any pointers i 
would appreciate it. thanks.... feel free to email me if you want.... i'm 
pulling my hair out here....i tried to follow the directions in the 
Documentation as much as possible...
