[mythtv-users] Installing & Running LIRC Problems

I tried both suggestions.  I used setserial as listed on LIRC 
Dependencies and then loaded modprobe lirc_serial, still had the same 
error messages.  I then tried the second suggestion of removing 
lirc_serial from boot and not using it.  irrecord gave an error.  I did 
a $ dmesg | grep tty as suggested and received $ ttyS00 at 0x03f8 (irq 
= 4_ is a 16550A.  Does the fact that its listed as ttyS00 mean 
anything? /dev has only a ttyS0 listed.  I tried linking LIRC manually 
to a ttyS00 but it did not work.  LIRC install did not mention 
installing a kernel-driver.  However, I tried urpmi kernel-driver and 
it said "No Such Package".  Any other ideas? Thanks.
