I know that this can be frustrating. I'd just use the
lirc package from Knoppmyth so you don't have to worry
about a recompile on a kernel change. What do you have
in your modprobe.conf and how are you starting lirc
usually found in your /etc/rc.d/rc.local also what do
you have in your lirc.conf file and what are you using
for your change channel script.
