Challenge to get mce_usb2 to work on a diskless md
« on: July 28, 2008, 04:06:57 pm »
I have managed to get a pinnacle mce remote to work on my core/hybrid using a recompiled mce_usb2 driver. Now attempting to get it to work on a diskless md. The driver loads, as shown by lsmod, but /dev/lirc0 is not created. Anyone with any pointers on how to troubleshoot this will be appreciated.

Scroll down till you get to Debian GNU/Linux 4.0

Im still working on this issue but I believe this site has the answer. You need to patch the 0.8.0 version which can be found here

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=5444&package_id=5487

You have to make a file called lirc-patch then vi into it and paste eric coopers patch

Untar the package then paste your new lirc-patch file into the lirc-0.8.0 directory

patch -p2 < lirc-patch        <----using terminal in the 0.8.0 directory

I have the phillips mce_usb2 ir sensor but it looks like it will fix all of them from what I can tell.  Hope this helps! I just hope I can find a way to get rid of the 0.8.3 package due to it not allowing me to compile otherwise im going to have to reinstall my Linuxmce Gutsy 7.10 which I REALLY don't want to do.

Also I have a Nvidia card and ran the depmod -a command STAY AWAY FROM THIS IT JACKED MY VIDEO EVERY TIME I RAN IT. Ill keep you updated on my progress.
-----------------------edit
Okay now I made a new module lirc-modules-2.6.22.9_0.8.2-0ubuntu8+2.6.22.9-10.00.Custom_i386.deb

I did this by going into /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.22-14-generic
Then running                         make-kpkg modules-image  <---------------using terminal once again

Then I ran

dpkg -i lirc-modules-2.6.22.9_0.8.2-0ubuntu8+2.6.22.9-10.00.Custom_i386.deb

Selecting previously deselected package lirc-modules-2.6.22.9.
(Reading database ... 120525 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking lirc-modules-2.6.22.9 (from lirc-modules-2.6.22.9_0.8.2-0ubuntu8+2.6.22.9-10.00.Custom_i386.deb) ...
Setting up lirc-modules-2.6.22.9 (0.8.2-0ubuntu8+2.6.22.9-10.00.Custom) ...

SUCCESS!

Hopefully I can still boot into this OS wish me luck!

Okay I booted back into linuxmce whew........... I just need to figure out how to get this into pluto so it will update and finally fix the issue were all having.  I have used kpackage and ive seen the deb that has been installed weirdly enough there is a deb that is very similar to the one I put in.

lirc-modules-2.6.22-14-generic <-------already there
lirc-modules-2.6.22.9<---------------my custom build
lirc-pluto points to lirc-modules-2.6.22-14-generic is this the bug????????? I think so im going to try to find a way to edit this deb to point correctly or do I just need to delete the lirc-modules-2.6.22-14-generic? Wish I knew hopefully someone else will jump in on this.

SOLVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D

So I finally figured it out I went here...looks lke it was jus a broken package.......You might not even have to do all the above steps.

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/gutsy/i386/liblircclient-dev/0.8.2-0ubuntu8 installed this package with kpackage

Then installed these starting with:
liblircclient-dev <-----couldnt install without the above package
liblircclient0
lirc-modules-2.6.22-14-generic
lirc-pluto
pluto-lirc-wrapper
lirc-x

I prolly dont need all of them but I used all and it is WORKING!!!! FINALLY IN LNUXMCE AND I NOTICED IT WORKS IN TERMINAL SO I IMAGINE IT WORKS EVERYWHERE!!!!

I also copied my lircd.conf from /etc/lirc to /etc

Here is my lircd.conf file:
