    Correct way of chaning lirc configuration ?

    What is the correct way to change the lirc configuration in Mythbuntu 8.04 for various applications without risking it to be overwritten during upgrades ?

    Can I safely change the ~/.lirc/mythtv file or should I add a new file in ~./lirc/ which contains my additional key-mappings ?

    Anything in ~ is fair game to modify. This stuff only gets changed if you rerun mythbuntu-lirc-generator (possibly from MCC).

    I must say that I needed to do everything manually as the MCC lirc configuration part got locked. Running with irrecord + configurating lircrc was the easiest solution to me

    I suppose the mythbuntu-lirc-generator will overwrite the files in ~/.lirc/ ?
    Will it only overwrite files it knows or will it clear the whole ~/.lirc directory ?

    The reason I'm asking is that I tought it would be a good idea to put my own files as for example:
    ~/.lirc/myth_custom

    In that case I only have to remember to add new includes if mythbuntu-lirc-generator is run some time by accident through MCC.
