Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 362201
No config for IrDA connection parameters
Last modified: 2011-07-15 12:50:33 EDT
Description of problem:
irda-utils does not seem to contain any way to provide or set needed connection
parameters for an IrDA connection. This means that one needs to, e.g., execute
manually a script every time when creating an IrDA connection. The parameters
I'm talking about are needed especially with GPRS connections (numerous phone
models need them):
# Adjust IrDA settings for GPRS
echo 115200 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_baud_rate
echo 2000 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_tx_data_size
echo 1000 > /proc/sys/net/irda/min_tx_turn_time
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_tx_window
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Notice lack of means to provide above parameters in a config file
Parameters not supported.

As more and more mobile phones come with Bluetooth, not IrDA, nowadays I'm not sure is this worth the effort? OTOH, LIRC seems now finally be heading to kernel:
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Let it be all in one place (ie. put this staff to NM bug).
