This is how I got my remote working with the 2.6.38 kernel with the gentoo patches (revision 8.) All of this is on a gentoo x86 machine.
My kernel is configured with (in addition to those needed for pvrusb2)
Device Drivers --->
<M> Multimedia Support --->
<M> Remote Controller adapters --->
<M> Compile Remote Controller keymap modules
<M> Enable IR to LIRC bridge
[*] Staging drivers --->
[*] Linux.... (LIRC) --->
<M> Zilog/Hauppauge IR Transmitter
Then the pvrusb2 driver and the lirc drivers together create a device node
like /dev/input/eventN where N depends on what keyboards, mice etc are
plugged into your computer at boot-time. To get around that I made a udev
KERNEL=="event?", SUBSYSTEMS=="rc", SYMLINK+="lirc-hauppauge"
On my distro (OMD) that goes in /etc/udev/rules.d/local.rules
I installed lirc-0.9.0 with only the devinput driver using my
distribution's package manager. I think it could be configured manually
I used the lirc.conf file found (OMD)
I put the above file at /etc/lirc/lircd.conf (OMD)
I edited the config file for my lircd service (/etc/conf.d/lircd OMD)
to run lircd with the options "-d /dev/lirc-hauppauge"
I added ir_kbd_i2c to my auto-loaded modules (OMD /etc/conf.d/modules)
Finally I've attached my .lircrc configured for mythtv, mplayer and vlc.
I hope that helps someone else.
