So I just installed the Minimal CD Installation and then loaded only grub with a couple apps and XBMC. The thing starts and shutsdown in seconds (ok, more like like 20-30s for startup, still better than the 2+ minutes I was getting with Win7).

But what I want now is to be able to use my MCE remote with XBMC. I've installed the lirc package but I doesn't seem to work, plus I can't find too much info about it.

Anyone have any solutions or suggestions I can try?

Yes it's posible but I need to know what IR receiver are you trying to connect. USB MCE remote? or a IMON IR.
