[mythtv-users] FC-4 installation - Got my remote to work

I finally got my remote to work, although, I don't know why this fixed 
it.  The box is fairly new, with FC-4 and mythtv installed from scratch 
(using Jarod's howto, again, very nice job).  After installing the lirc 
package, I couldn't get the remote to work after rebooting.  The problem 
was very similar to this tread:


Anyhow, after lots of reading I found a couple of posts with similar 
problems.  At their suggestion, I ended up adding this to 
/etc/rc.local,  and now it seems to work, although I don't know why.

Added to /etc/rc.local

/sbin/depmod -a
/sbin/modprobe lirc_i2c
/sbin/chkconfig lircd on
/sbin/service lircd start

Another note, I did this to get the ntp service to run.  It didn't seem 
to want to work after turning it on through the X configuration.

# /sbin/chkconfig ntpd on
# /sbin/service ntpd start


PS - I made a couple of posts earlier in the month that came across 
rather poorly (even I didn't like them after reading them online).  
Please accept my apologies if they struck you the same way!
