[mythtv-users] lirc not starting up automatically

When I reboot my computer, I have to manually modprobe lirc_i2c and
restart the lircd service.  Unsure what I am doing wrong, but it is
probably something obvious.

I am using FC5, running from Jarod's guide.  Have an old PVR-350 card,
and using the IR receiver that came with that.

Here are some relevant datapoints:

# chkconfig --list |grep lirc
lircd           0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

 more /etc/modprobe.conf

alias eth0 forcedeth
alias scsi_hostadapter sata_nv
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0

}; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0

install lirc_i2c /sbin/modprobe ivtv; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install lirc_i2c
install ohci1394 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install ohci1394;
/sbin/modprobe raw1394

# dmesg |grep lirc
lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, at major 61
lirc_i2c: chip found @ 0x18 (Hauppauge IR)
lirc_dev: lirc_register_plugin: sample_rate: 10

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
