[mythtv-users] native lirc support fails- "connection refused"

mythtv version: 0.16 (compiled with native lirc support)
lirc version: lirc-0.7.0pre8


I installed the lirc driver, and lircd is running, and if I use irw, I
can see each button I press.


When I run mythfrontend, the remote doesn't work.  I see this in the

mythtv: could not connect to socket
mythtv: Connection refused
lirc_init failed for mythtv, see preceding messages

I've got no idea why mythfrontend would not be able to to access lirc.

Here's a side note- it seems myth tries to access /dev/lircd, because
initially, the lirc driver only created a /dev/lirc0, and mythfrontend
would throw the same error as above, except saying "file not found"
instead of "connection refused".  After I added a symbolic link
(/dev/lircd) to point to /dev/lirc0, I started getting my current error.

Anyone have any idea?
