This is my file:
# Note: in addition to these parameters, you need to have working -*- sh -*-
# configuration file for lircd (and lircmd if enabled).
# Options to lircd(8). Typically, this will be empty, as which driver to use
# should be specified using the LIRC_DRIVER variable below.
# The infrared receiver (and/or transmitter) driver to be used by lircd(8),
# similar to passing "-H driver" to lircd(8).
# Run "/usr/sbin/lircd -H help" to get a listing of supported drivers.
# Which lirc device will be used by lircd(8).
# This is the same as passing "-d device" to lircd.
# An empty value will use the default /dev/lirc0 device.
# If "yes", the init script will try to start lircmd(8) too.
# Options to lircmd(8).

Looks that way.
[root at localhost modprobe.d]# ls -la /dev/lirc*
