    [SOLVED] /dev/lirc is missing after mytbuntu-lircrc-generator update from 0.16.to 0.1

    After updating mythbuntu-lircrc-generator from 0.16 to 0.17 today, my remote stopped working.

    I ran lircd manually, and it crashes when a client tries to register with it. It dumps an error that states that it cannot find /dev/lirc.

    Sure enough, when I check /dev I only have lircd and lircm -- and I know /dev/lirc used to exist.

    I cleared out all my lirc configs, and started from scratch, reconfigured it in the Command-Center. And it still has this problem, I even tried reverting back to 0.16 with no success.

    Has anyone else run into this problem?

    Please help, I miss my remote

    Thank you.

    The change to mlg 0.17 only affects .lircrc files.

    What remote are you using? Does the driver load (according to lsmod)?

    Thank you for the reply.

    I played with things a little more this morning, I got it working.

    I checked 'lsmod' and it was not loading the second module lirc_l2c if I remember correctly.

    I shut the machine down and swapped the card to a different PCI slot, booted it up, and it worked. The only thing I can think is that the card got fuzzed when I rebooted after updating.

    Please mark as solved.

    Thank you again.
