In /etc/sysconfig/lirc I don't have any driver specified, because lircd -H help doesn't return mceusb as an item in the list (even with the new kernel you provided a link to).  So I'm now ready for any new suggestions.  :)

The "drivers" in lircd talk are "interface between hardware and lircd". The "default"
lircd driver is the one used to talk to hardware via the lirc kernel character device
interface, which is accessed via /dev/lircX. So "default" is the correct *lircd* driver
for talking to the mceusb *kernel* driver via the lirc device interface.

Does mode2 spit out any data when you push buttons on your remote? i.e., lets first
see if any data is getting out to userspace at all. If you could pastebin that output
(assuming there is some) and your active lircd.conf, I'll see what I can see.

And please, list etiquette here is not to top-post.

>>> I had it working with FC14 until the latest kernel update.  But I did it by leaving out the lirc rpm and building my own 0.8.7, as I've done with previous installs.  I had a bit of a stumble there until I had set the lirc device to be /var/run/lirc/lircd too.   That was with kernel  Then I updated to, rebuilt lirc as I did before, but now it doesn't work.
