I don't know if this is the same problem, but I have a FC3 machine, and I
did a yum update a couple of days ago. It installed kernel 2.6.12-1.1381_FC3,
and when I boot this kernel it gives me no /dev/lirc0, only a /dev/lircd, so
lirc doesn't work.

If I reboot to the previous kernel, 2.6.12-1.1376_FC3, /dev/lirc0 and
/dev/lircd are both created and lirc works.

I'm using a custom built lirc_serial device, so I assumed the lirc_serial
device hasn't been compiled into the updated kernel. Could this be your
problem? Can you try rebooting to an older kernel?
