For some days now I have spend a lot of time in getting any remote control device to work with LIRC. in /var/log/messages I get hopefull entries but still with mode2 I do not see anything happening when I press a random button on the remote controller.
It is not clear anymore what I need exactly to setup for IrDA before LIRC.
I use a thinkpad T60 with a infrared device IBM SC-20H2987 on fedora 8, kernel 126.96.36.199-60.fc8. In the BIOS the infrared is enabled and the device is configured at I/O 0x3E8 IRQ 4 and DMA 3
I have followed the IRDA pages at
and the poor description for LIRC at http://lirc.linux-mirror.org/html/in...tml#installing
When I just start the lirc service and I modprobe the lirc_sir module it seems the ir port is listening but it is not.

Aug 3 17:19:00 L3 kernel: lirc_sir: I/O port 0x03e8, IRQ 4.

< nothing shows when pressing keys on the remote control>
The first question rised is do I need the service irda running. irattach fails
Aug 3 17:44:30 L3 irattach: tcgetattr: Input/output error
Aug 3 17:44:30 L3 irattach: Stopping device /dev/ttyS2
Aug 3 17:44:30 L3 irattach: ioctl(SIOCGIFFLAGS): No such device
Aug 3 17:44:30 L3 irattach: exiting ...
Is there anybody here who has remote control working and would like to share the way it is done, or anybody with a useful tip. I will appreciate highly!
Many thanks in advance.
