It has to do with the switch to udev for handling device creation.  I'm 
not sure myself how to get udev to automatically load devices properly 
like it did in FC2 and previous versions of FC, but for now I've added 
the appropriate modprobe lines to the /etc/init.d/ scripts for lircd and 
mythbackend under the start section to load lirc modules and ivtv 
modules respectively.

Anyone know how to make it work like it used to?
