Hi list,

I just upgraded my fedora 12 system using yum update.  Along with the
new myth packages, I also had a lot of system upgrades including my
kernel to  After doing a reboot, lirc won't
work (version lirc-0.8.6-6.fc12.i686).

I believe lirc is loading.  I see this in dmesg:
[root at localhost ~]# dmesg |grep lirc
lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, major 249
lirc_it87 00:0c: lirc_dev: driver lirc_it87 registered at minor = 0
lirc_it87: found IT8712.
lirc_it87: I/O port 0x0310, IRQ 5.
lirc_it87: Installed.
lirc_i2c: chip 0x0 found @ 0x18 (Hauppauge IR)
i2c ir driver 1-0018: lirc_dev: driver lirc_i2c registered at minor = 1

When I run irw, I get this in /var/log/messages:

May  3 11:35:34 localhost lircd-0.8.6[1819]: accepted new client on
May  3 11:35:56 localhost lircd-0.8.6[1819]: removed client

However, I get no output on the console when running irw and hitting buttons.

My setup is a pvr-350 receiver attached to a pvr-350 card.  Everything
was running fine when I rebooted and I did not touch the box, so I am
sure it is a software and not a hardware issue.
