[LINUX] HOW-TO configure Soundgraph iMON VFD/IR Receiver (used by many HTPC chassis)
It's the actual kernel version (it's the version of XBMC Live 8.10). I got a Lirc version from CVS using (setup.sh tells me it is Lirc 0.8.5-CVS):
Code:
cvs -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/lirc login
cvs -z8 -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/lirc co lirc
./autogen.sh
./setup.sh
sudo make
sudo make install

I had to use a newer version then the latest release, because my 15c2:0036 device is not in the Lirc 0.8.4.a release.

I followed your advise NOT to use lirc-modules-source.

The installation only produced the files (as far I can tell):
/lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/misc/lirc_imon.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/misc/lirc_dev.ko

But XBMC is using Lirc from:
/lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/kernel/drivers/input/misc/

I renamed the old and linked to the 2 files from there:
sudo mv /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/kernel/drivers/input/misc/lirc_imon.ko{,.OLD}
sudo ln -s /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/misc/lirc_imon.ko /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/kernel/drivers/input/misc/

On the internet I found a thread were someone claimed (a few months back) that a newer CVS did the trick. Another suggested it is using a wrong version (there are about 6 files/vesions of lirc_imon.ko in ubuntu).

As for the version, modinfo points to:
/lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/kernel/drivers/input/misc/lirc_imon.ko

Maybe I should try placing a copy of lirc_imon.ko file in that folder instead of linking to it?

I can try a new version from CVS, but how do I tell if its newer?

It looks like Lirc got updated but it depends on something that isn't there.

Any ideas?

Oh, one more thing. XBMC Live has an empty sources.list (size 0). But there is also a folder sources.list.d in which there are 2 files:
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu.org.list
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbmc.org.list

In ubuntu.org.list were only the deb lines, so I copied each uncommented line and made a deb-src line. Otherwise "sudo apt-get build-dep lirc lcdproc" would fail. Maybe I should do that for xbmc.org.list too or is anything missing from the ubuntu.org.list?

The current contents of the files is.

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu.org.list (I did not remove anything, just added the deb-src)
Code:
