Right. On Gentoo here, udev automatically createst the lirc device
file /dev/lirc/0 after modprobe of lirc_dev && lirc_irc.
The lirc daemon then references the configurable device file location
As lirc package here provides seperate lirc modules (like nvidia but
opensource), I frequently forget to recompile the lirc modules after
rebooting on upgrading my kernel. As such, I also then have to reload
the pvrusb2 driver && mythbackend to make sure I have infrared support
With the continued development of udev & dbus, hopeful lirc issues will
resolve and drivers & service won't need to be reloade for lirc to work?
