I didn't mess with anything, besides creating a symbolic link. I
removed the symbolic link, and all is as it was when it was first
installed. irw is working fine by the way. The lirc_i2c module is not
creating those devices that you listed, and I have no idea how to fix
that. Can't I get myth to see the lirc0 device? In my view,
mythfrontend should have some way to configure stuff like that.
