Its possible to pull the bits now (including a pre-build kernel for
In thinking about this some more, the assorted options are currently:
1) run Fedora 11, download the kernel I built last night from Fedora
2) git clone my lirc driver git tree, build a 2.6.31-rcX kernel (best
to git clone linus' tree off git.kernel.org, then add me as a remote,
I only have 5Mbps outbound).
3) grab just the lirc bits from git, using gitweb's snapshot
Unpack them, then 'make -C /path/to/kernel/source M=$PWD
modules' (assumes you have the config vars for lirc properly set, I
If running on pre-2.6.31, you'll want to back out the 2.6.31-specific
i2c changes, which this patch will do:
4) grab the lirc patches that are in my Fedora kernel build directly:
The second is only needed for pre-2.6.31.
All of the above also require some patching of the hdpvr driver as it
exists in kernel 2.6.30, using this:
That's now a roll-up of things in Janne's hdpvr hg tree that aren't in
