I broke my Windows addiction this last summer and have been happily running Redhat 9.0 on my entertainment PC, watching TV with my Leadtek Winfast TV2000XP Deluxe with TvTime and watching DVD's with Ogle.

Until coming across "Corey's TV Tuner Guide," I didn't know that I could get the remote to work under Linux too. As I've been using TvTime for a few months now, the bttv driver is obviously working fine. However, I'm have trouble compiling LIRC to get the remote working. I downoaded the modified LIRC package from and followed the instructions in the README-WINFAST file. Upon issuing the "make" command, I get the following error message:

cd .
/bin/sh ./config.status
config.status: creating config.h
config.status: config.h is unchanged
make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/lirc-0.6.6-cq'

make: *** [all] Error 2

I don't often install packages from source, so I don't really know what's going on here. Can you let me know what I need to do to get the package installed correctly? Thanks.
