irda and kernel 2.6.x

trying to use irda to connect my mobile phone synchronizing some numbers ...

using kernel 2.6.1

having irda-utils installed

having a "Serial-type IrDA based device"

findchip -v gives nothing back

dmesg:

request_module: failed /sbin/modprobe -- char-major-226-0. error = 256
request_module: failed /sbin/modprobe -- net-pf-5. error = 256
request_module: failed /sbin/modprobe -- tty-ldisc-11. error = 256
request_module: failed /sbin/modprobe -- tty-ldisc-11. error = 256
request_module: failed /sbin/modprobe -- tty-ldisc-11. error = 256
request_module: failed /sbin/modprobe -- tty-ldisc-11. error = 256
request_module: failed /sbin/modprobe -- tty-ldisc-11. error = 256

but no irda or anything related ... the address of the irda (from bios) i can find in dmesg:

[damir@Asteraceae damir]$ dmesg | grep 0x2f8
ttyS1 at I/O 0x2f8 (irq = 3) is a NS16550A

any idea how to use irda with a kernel 2.6.? (since modules.conf is not longer used, and all docs on the internet relate to it :shock:  :? )

googling gg: linux irda kernel 2.6 gives nothing inteligent back

any ideas? anyone using irda with 2.6 sucessfully?

Re: irda and kernel 2.6.x

did you recompile irda-utils against 2.6.1 or  check their homepage for information?

http://irda.sourceforge.net/ says it's only for 2.2 and 2.4 kernels and i suppose it will not compile with 2.6 (=dont know)
