[mythtv-users] How can I tell if native lirc is enabled?

Hi all,

I'm trying to configure lirc with mythtv 0.20 on Ubuntu 6.10.  I have  
lirc working and have the config files in place.  irw correctly shows  
the keypresses.  However mythtv doesn't register anything.  I put the  
lircrc file under ~/.mythtv.  My lircd.conf file is for Tivo Series 2  
and the lircrc file is the one referenced in the lircd.conf file.   
The names of the keys match (1_TV_POWER, etc.)  When I run  
mythfrontend, mythtv doesn't respond to remote commands.  I see no  
indication that it's using lirc at all.  I installed mythtv via the  
Synaptic package manager in Ubuntu.  Should I expect that native lirc  
is built-in or do I have to use irxevent or build mythtv myself?   
What can I do to troubleshoot further?
