lirc fails to load at boot time - but manual modprobe works

Post by Andre_the_Baron » Wed Nov 01, 2006 5:27 am

I have some trouble with lircd on my Silverstone LC16M.
I have followed the instructions to compile and install the drivers for the VFD/IR - using the imon multi-median.

But the driver fails to load at start-up. Only when manually run modprobe lirc_dev and lirc_imon do the drivers load. Then I can manually start lircd and LCDd, and then lcdproc.

Any idea why it fails at boot time, but is ok to load manually ?

I am running openSuSE 10.1, patched Kernel 2.6.16-25. Perhaps there is a quick-fix. Latest imon and lcdproc code from this site.

Thanks.
