I have an Antec Fusion silver case with the VFD in it. This has been
working fine for ages via both lcdproc and Myth frontend. However a recent
kernel upgrade in Fedora 9 to 184.108.40.206-41.fc9.x86_64 stopped it working
completely. It had been working under 220.127.116.11-79.fc9.x86_64.
lsusb shows the appropriate device detected. The lirc_imon and lirc_dev
kernel modules load successfully at boot - this can be seen in dmesg and
When I start the LCDd daemon, I get an error that /dev/lcd0 does not
exist, and a question asking whether the kernel module is installed. A
quick lsmod|grep lirc shows that lirc_imon and lirc_dev are indeed still
Anyone hit anything recently that gives similar problems?
I've tried installing Fedora 10 on the same box, and that gives the same
problem with kernel 18.104.22.168-117.fc10.x86_64.
I'm in the process of registering on the venky imon message board, but
that process requires manual authorisation by an admin of the board, so I
thought I would ask on here in the meantime.
Any pointers much appreciated, or even just verification that it isn't
