Description Yaron Minsky 2000-10-28 18:24:32 UTC
I installed the IrDA RPM and started it up (/etc/rc.d/init.d/irda start),
but the startup fails, putting the following error messages into the log.
In particular, it can't seem to find the tty-ldisc-11 module.

My system is a Gateway Solo 2500 with a fresh (not upgraded) Redhat 7.0
install.  Findchip -v returns the following:

snapdragon: yminsky # findchip  -v

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-10-31 12:38:29 UTC
Add the following to /etc/mdules.conf:

alias tty-ldisc-11 irtty
alias char-major-60 ircomm_tty
alias char-major-161 ircomm-tty

The latest irda-utils package (should appear in rawhide soon) does this automatically.
