If you do not have pre-compiled kernel modules for LIRC for your
kernel, or your kernel does not currently allow you to compile them
yourself, then you are stuck until the kernel is fixed.

Have you chosen CentOS over a non-enterprise grade OS (such as Fedora)
for a particular reason?



No particular reason.  CentOS IS billed as an enterprise-grade solution (it's basically RHEL with the branding removed).  However, I have actually been considering trying out Fedora, if only to learn the differences (also because there actually seems to be a more extensive user community), and because it has been like jumping through my own -- well, it has been a hassle setting up Myth on CentOS.
