[mythtv-users] Fedora FC15, lirc and CommandIR

Long story short:  I had a drive fail on me (the one holding the OS in 
this case), and due to changes in my circumstances, I decided to use 
Fedora (FC15) as the distro on this rebuild versus Gentoo.

In any case, I have a CommandIR Mini attached to this system to control 
4 STB's.  I just copied my old config files, channel change scripts, etc 
from a relatively recent backup, made a couple tweaks, started lircd 
from the command line (/usr/sbin/lircd --driver=commandir) and manually 
verified everything was working, and the STB's were changing to the 
correct channels.

Then edited the /etc/sysconfig/lirc to specify the driver (commandir), 
ran 'service lirc start', verified lircd was running, ran one of the 
channel change scripts, and nothing.

Checked /var/log/messages and saw several messages:
Aug  6 00:24:58 snoopy lircd-0.9.0[11837]: No CommandIRs found

Checked the command line used to run lircd with 'ps aux | grep lircd' 
but didn't see anything odd.

Stopped the service, ran lircd with the exact same command line I saw 
from the 'ps aux' and it works.  Killed lircrd, restarted the service, 
nothing. Nothing that is except more 'No CommandIRs found'

In both cases lircd is being run as root.  Anyone have any clue what I 
should be looking at?
