    lirc modules on 2.6.37-12

    hey all,

    I can't seem to figure out how to compile and install the lirc modules on the latest 2.6.37-12 kernel. this on on 10.04.1. when attempting to compile the modules, I get the following error:

    Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 2.6.37-12-generic (x86_64)
    Consult the make.log in the build directory
    /var/lib/dkms/lirc/0.8.6/build/ for more information.
    dpkg: error processing lirc-modules-source (--configure):
    subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 10
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    so I go ahead and check out the suggested log file, which reads in relevant part,

    make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.37-12-generic'
    test -e include/generated/autoconf.h -a -e include/config/auto.conf || ( \
    echo; \
    echo " ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid."; \
    echo " include/generated/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are missing.";\
    echo " Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it."; \
    so then, i follow those instructions, but alas the error i'm given here leaves me with no more suggestions:

    root@entertainment:/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.37-12-generic# make oldconfig && make prepare
    scripts/kconfig/conf --oldconfig Kconfig
    # configuration written to .config
    scripts/kconfig/conf --silentoldconfig Kconfig
    CHK include/linux/version.h
    CHK include/generated/utsrelease.h
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `kernel/bounds.c', needed by `kernel/bounds.s'. Stop.
    make: *** [prepare0] Error 2
    does anybody have any idea about how to, like, produce a rule for kernel/bounds.s necessary to make said target?

    Are you sure you need to compile anything related to lirc in ubuntu ?
    I think no.

    grep lirc /lib/modules/2.6.37-1-686/modules.symbols
    alias symbol:lirc_dev_fop_poll lirc_dev
    alias symbol:lirc_get_pdata lirc_dev
    alias symbol:lirc_dev_fop_ioctl lirc_dev
    alias symbol:lirc_dev_fop_write lirc_dev
    alias symbol:lirc_unregister_driver lirc_dev
    alias symbol:lirc_dev_fop_open lirc_dev
    alias symbol:lirc_register_driver lirc_dev
    alias symbol:lirc_dev_fop_close lirc_dev
    alias symbol:lirc_dev_fop_read lirc_dev
