Greg, I reinstalled my Z yesterday with hentges rom 64-0 kernel and strangely, on reboot, the lirc and lirc-modules ipkgs are not installed by default on it.

Can you confirm the settings for your system? Thanks! Appreciate your time and help.

If these modules require a different kernel, I am most willingly to try it out. Please let me know. Thanks.

Just go to your taskbar and see if you can enable irda?

You can check:
/media/card/lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/lirc/lirc_dev.o 'and' lirc_sir.o

and see if they are symlinked to

/lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/lirc/lirc_dev.o 'and' lirc_sir.o

Now you install the irk-belkin ipk as per the instructions here that acpkendo used:
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=12428&hl=irk

I copied the irk-belkin ipk to my CF-card and disabled the feeds, then did ipkg update and installed it from the command line.

Remember to enable your feeds and do ipkg update after the installation. smile.gif

Snappy, lirc 'is' already installed. Use --force-depends to install the belkin ipk.

Hi Greg, thanks for your time. smile.gif

Now it says

Configuring irk-belkin
Configuring lirc-modules
mknod: /dev/lirc: File exists
postinst script returned status 1
ERROR: lirc-modules.postinst returned 1

what does status 1 mean anyway?

btw, Greg, I just reflashed my Z with Hentges rom 64-0 and sure enough, neither lirc nor lirc-modules are installed. Can you confirm if you really have both modules installed in the default installation? Thanks.

I can only assume that however you tried this:

That you have screwed up the ipkg list? So you must once again follow the instructions in this thread and disable the ipkg feeds and do ipkg update then install the ipk from the command line with --force-depends. rolleyes.gif

ok, so if I am hearing you right, it means that despite the fact that I did a clean reinstall, and that lirc and lirc-modules are not installed by default in my case (from a clean reinstall), I should go ahead with the ipkg update and install instructions in this thread? If so, I have a clean install right now and would be happy to try it out. Thanks.

Greg, thanks for your speedy reply. smile.gif

from the default install, /etc/init.d directory does not contain lirc anywhere. If my assumption is not true, let me know and I'll go ahead with a reinstall with the instructions herein again. Thanks.

ok, I a reinstall with the instructions herein. and here's the output:

This is from a fresh install of hentges rom. Unless I read wrongly, it appears that lirc is not installed in my case and lirc-modules is not installed by default properly as well.

Ideas?

Let's check for:
/etc/init.d/lircd symlinked to /media/card/etc/>?
If it's not there install the lirc_0.7.0-r5_collie.ipk

Check for:
/lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/lirc/lirc_dev.o 'and' lirc_sir.o symlinked to /media/card/lib/>?
If not there install the lirc-modules_0.7.0-r3_collie.ipk

Check for:
/opt/QtPalmtop/plugins/inputmethods/libirk.so libirk.so.1 libirk.so.1.0 libirk.so.1.0.0 symlinked to /media/card/opt/QtPalmtop/plugins/>?
/etc/lircd.conf symlinked to /media/card/etc/>?
/etc/IRK.conf symlinked to /media/card/opt/QtPalmtop/etc/skel/IRK.conf ?
If not there install the irk-belkin_0.11-r1_arm.ipk 'as per the instructions in this thread'.
Reboot and you should have the Belkin option available like I have. (but no keyboard to check it)

Please fix this... your giving me a headache! wacko.gif

Checked. Not there whatsoever. Only the default three:

libqhandwriting.so
libqmultikey.so
libqpickboard.so

I cannot install irk-belkin because it will have the lirc errors as stated earlier.

As you said earlier that lirc and lirc-modules are installed by default in hentges rom, Can you point me to the install rom that you use so that I can just have it by default? The default as I see it from almost 7 times of reflashing, points to that they are not installed by default and attempts to install them fails as well.

I hope to have this fixed too! smile.gif ... unfortunately the errors I am encountering are simply incomprehensible. I'm pinging CoreDump to see if he has any insight about having lirc/lirc-modules installed by default in the hentges rom in case I missed out anything.

Meanwhile, appreciate your time and suggestions. Let me know if there is anything else I should try. Thanks! smile.gif
