[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/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!
