Description of problem:
Updating to kernel 126.96.36.199-217.2.7.fc11.x86_64 dropped support for lirc_mceusb. This was working fine till 188.8.131.52-217.2.3.fc11.x86_64
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup FC11 on a box with a MCE compatible IR sensor.
2. Install 184.108.40.206-217.2.3.fc11.x86_64 and confirm lircd works.
3. Update to kernel 220.127.116.11-217.2.7.fc11.x86_64
lircd starts but complains of missing /dev/lirc in /var/log/messages when irw is started
irw should connect fine with lircd and report the buttons being pressed.
I assume this is the actual cause since the older update had this folder
ls: cannot access /lib/modules/18.104.22.168-217.2.7.fc11.x86_64/kernel/drivers/input/lirc: No such file or directory
FYI I don't see kernel/drivers/input/lirc in FC11 with 22.214.171.124-217.2.3.fc11 driver on a x86 install too. The previous rpm still installed on that box has the folder with the drivers inside it.
Yeah, when updating the lirc driver patch last time 'round, a critical piece was accidentally left out, resulting in the drivers not getting built. I've already got a new build underway to remedy this, but I'm not sure when it'll hit the updates repo...
I just installed the kernel (PAE) and firmware packages from Koji and they resolve the issue. Thank you.
Thanks the Koji package worked for me too !!
This is fixed in 126.96.36.199-217.2.16.fc11.x86_64
