OK, do you know for a fact that you need lirc_serial? I just ran
into a similar problem on Mandrake 9.1; the packager for lircd
thought that all serial devices need to use lirc_serial - they don't.
Did the lirc compile mention anything about needing to install a
In my case, I've got a Pinnacle TV IR remote, and it uses the
"serial" driver, not any special LIRC hardware driver.
In Mandrake 9.1, the serial driver is compiled into the kernel, so no
external modules need to be loaded.
When you do a $ dmesg | grep tty
what does it show?
Try getting rid of lirc_serial from your /etc/modules.conf and
rebooting - I've found that using lirc_serial when you don't need it
will do bad things to the serial port status.
Anyway, try that again without using lirc_serial.
