    Post How to compile lirc for home-brew serial-port driver Igor Cesko's variation

    Since version 0.8.5-0ubuntu2 we don't have support for Home-brew serial-port driver Igor Cesko's variation in lirc deb package.

    This how-to will show how to recompile (debian/ubuntu way) lirc package to get that support.
    This example is for version 0.8.6, but it should work with other versions too.

    Get the lirc sources:
    sudo apt-get -d source lirc
    Install missing build dependencies:
    sudo apt-get build-dep lirc
    Unpack and patch sources:
    tar xzvf lirc_0.8.6.orig.tar.gz
    cd lirc-0.8.6/
    zcat ../lirc_0.8.6-0ubuntu2.diff.gz | patch -p1
    Apply modifications;
    in file debian/modules-source/lirc-modules-source.conf set LIRC_SERIAL_CFLAGS to:
    LIRC_SERIAL_CFLAGS=" -DLIRC_SERIAL_SOFTCARRIER -DLIRC_SERIAL_IGOR"
    at the top of the file lirc-0.8.6/debian/changelog insert something like this
    lirc (0.8.6-0ubuntu3) karmic; urgency=low

    * Added -DLIRC_SERIAL_IGOR to lirc_serial module

    This step is optional, but it will provide nicer upgrade of official package. Note that we increased package version (3 in 0.8.6-0ubuntu3), official latest version was lirc_0.8.6-0ubuntu2.

    Build package
    sudo dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -us -sa -d
    Install binary packages:
    sudo dpkg -i lirc_0.8.6-0ubuntu3_i386.deb liblircclient0_0.8.6-0ubuntu3_i386.deb
    and new modules
    sudo dpkg -i lirc-modules-source_0.8.6-0ubuntu3_all.deb
    New installed lirc_serial module supports Igor Cesko's variation, we just have to configure it, run:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc
    and select Home-brew (16x50 UART compatible serial port).


    That's it! This method could be used for other drivers too.

    Hey thanks for this info. I've been blowing my brains out trying to find out why LIRC doesn't work with the homebrew receiver i've made.

    Now I know.

    I'm off to try this. Maybe over the weekend...
