I somehow screwed things up by adding the following to  /etc/default/grub :
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash rdblacklist=nouveau
gfxpayload=1024x768x24 vmalloc=256M"
and then updating grub by doing  grub2-mkconfig > /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
 per the recommendation of someone to fix other issues.  Not sure how
any of that would have impacted lirc.
