Heh, it's not working with TVtime...
It depends on my realtime clock...
rtctimer: Cannot open /dev/rtc: No such file or directory
rtctimer: Cannot open /dev/misc/rtc: No such file or directory

The error it got was 'No such file or directory'. That means that your first problem is that you do not have a /dev/rtc device file. If you are not using devfs, you should probably run 'cd /dev; ./MAKEDEV rtc'.

The RTC device is not a _dependency_ in tvtime, we work without it, but video will not be as smooth as it should be at high framerate. So, it's just a decrease in quality. smile.gif You can enable the RTC device in the 'Character Devices' section of make menuconfig, 'Enable Real Time Clock Device' I think is what it says.

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 http://www.thegoodtimes.ca/winfast/files/l...0.6.6-cq.tar.gz and followed the instructions in the README-WINFAST file. Upon issuing the "make" command, I get the following error message:

cd .
&& CONFIG_FILES= CONFIG_HEADERS=config.h
/bin/sh ./config.status
config.status: creating config.h
config.status: config.h is unchanged
make all-recursive

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving 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.

That's odd. Out of curiosity, do you have the kernel source tree stored in /usr/src/kernel? It looks like the install script is looking there for some kernel headers.

I have the kernel source tree stored in /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8.

By the absence of binaries, it also looks like it has never been configured or compiled. Would that make a difference?

go to /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8 and run the command:

make mrproper

Then copy the /boot/config-kernel file to /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8/.config ...

then from within /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8/ run the following commands;

make oldconfig
make dep

That should setup all the headers so you can compile stuff.

Also these commands:

cd /usr/src
ln -s linux-2.4.20-8 linux

Will create a /usr/src/linux ... which is where most programs that compile kernel modules look by default ...

That worked. Lirc compiled and installed without errors, but it doesn't seem to work yet. When I run lircd in nodaemon mode I get the message:

QUOTE
lircd 0.6.6: lircd(winfast_tv2000) ready


However, when I start irw to test the remote I get:

QUOTE
lircd 0.6.6: accepted new client on /dev/lircd
lircd 0.6.6: could not open /dev/lirc
lircd 0.6.6: default_init(): No such device
lircd 0.6.6: caught signal
Terminated


When I do a "ls" in /dev, /dev/lirc is in the black block with yellow text format that I infer means inactive. What needs to happen for me to get the lirc daemon working correctly?

It's possible that this may be a permissions problem, have you tried to run irw as root? If it works with root, then check the permissions on /dev/lircd.

With some poking around, I figured it out.

FYI: It turns out that "make install" did not actually install the module because it said the module
QUOTE
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/misc/lirc_dev.o was compiled for kernel version 2.4.20-8custom

That must be because I went through the process outlined by hughesjr above. "Well that's silly," I thought, because I didn't change anything about the kernel and didn't change the configuration file before compiling the kernel modules. So I forced the module in with "insmod -f lirc_gpio". (I also changed the permissions on /dev/lircd and /dev/lirc to rw-rw-rw, but I don't know if that did anything important.) Then I ran lircd and irw and all the buttons on the remote were working correctly. Now I just have to tweak the ~/.lircrc file.

Thanks for your help.
