This is what I get when I start lirc via
/etc/rc.d/lircd start :: Starting LIRC Daemon [BUSY] lircd: there's no hardware I can use and no peers are specified [FAIL]
I searched on google and I found this on the official lirc faq page:
I'm using the SuSE LIRC RPM. When I start lircd I get this error message:
lircd-0.6.3: there's no hardware I can use and no peers are specified
The lircd version in SuSE RPMs is compiled without hardware support. It can be only used to receive commands from another lircd over the network. This is probably not what you want. Compile your own LIRC package from source and remember to remove the LIRC RPM.
This is not Suse, but I'm still getting the error. Probably because the lircd version was compiled without hardware support (as stated). Is this normal or has there been a mistake from the packager? I wonder if it's possible to compile it with hardware support.
Had this problem yesterday; you now have to compile lirc-utils from abs, changing the --with-driver=none line with whatever driver you use.
If you're not familiar with how to do that, ask here and I'll walk you through it.
I assume this will be fixed in the future.
Just got fixed, lirc-utils now builds with --with-driver=all. Just pacman -Syu your way to happiness.
Thanks. This is solved.
