[mythtv-users] Confused about lirc_i2c

you looked in /lib/modules/`uname -r` ?


find /lib/modules/`uname -r` -type f -print | grep -i lirc_i2c

Should be a file there called lirc_i2c.ko .. if not, I at least know
that under gentoo, installing the lirc package will install this module,
and I have to re-emerge the package every time I recompile my kernel.
