I had a problem with a Dell Optiplex GX 270 where the
RS232 serial didn't work until a few seconds after
boot, so I had to manually insert the serial module
after boot before starting lircd.

I'd check your dmesg output to see why lircd isn't
starting properly, as one step towards debugging the problem.
