A few days ago I did a apt-get to update my Fedora Core 2 system and I 
noticed there was a update for lirc.  Immediately after the update the 
controler stopped working with Mythtv.  I can make it work following 
Myth(TV)ology instructions but only to display the buttons pressed to 
the display.  It will not work at  all with Mythtv.  The lircd is 
stopped with "lircd dead but subsys locked" message displayed in the 
"Service Configuration" GUI.  These are displayed in a log file:

Oct 26 19:34:23 MythTV lircd 0.7.0pre8[1980]: accepted new client on 
Oct 26 19:34:23 MythTV kernel: lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver 
registered, at major 61
Oct 26 19:34:23 MythTV lircd 0.7.0pre8[1980]: could not open /dev/lirc

Oct 26 19:34:23 MythTV lircd 0.7.0pre8[1980]: caught signal

This is my /etc/modprobe.conf file:

alias eth0 via-rhine
alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c
alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx
install snd-via82xx /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-via82xx && 
/usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-via82xx { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; 
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-via82xx
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd
# ivtv modules setup
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
alias char-major-81-1 ivtv
alias char-major-81-2 ivtv
install ivtv /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install ivtv; /sbin/modprobe ivtv-fb
install lirc_i2c /sbin/modprobe ivtv; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install 
# nvidia kernel module
alias char-major-195 nvidia-1_0-6111

Any idea what caused this and what I can do to fix it?

Thanks Dan
