When I apt-get installed lirc, I got these messages:
No valid /etc/lirc/lircd.conf has been found..
Remote control support has been disabled..
Reconfigure LIRC or manually replace /etc/lirc/lircd.conf to enable..
Looking at the LIRC webpage I see that the remote that I had wanted to use
is not supported... it's a SONY RMT-CE100A
Reading some instructions over the web it seems I could use irrecord to
create a lircd.conf file for my remote, so I tried:
keith@eve:~/temp$ sudo irrecord ce100a
irrecord - application for recording IR-codes for usage with lirc

irrecord: could not get file information for /dev/lirc
irrecord: default_init(): No such file or directory
irrecord: could not init hardware (lircd running ? --> close it, check
keith@eve:~/temp$ ps aux | grep lirc
root 4425 0.0 0.0 3380 384 ? Ss 22:11 0:00 lircd
keith 4539 0.0 0.1 3484 764 pts/0 S+ 22:14 0:00 grep lirc
So it seems I need to configure LIRC first, then use irrecord... but I am
unsure how to do that. Help?
