Thread: lirc installed by Yast2. "does not support sending"

  1. lirc installed by Yast2. "does not support sending"

    I've built a lirc transmitter/receiver. It receives IR without any issues
    and I've build up a collection of IR commands from my remote controls.

    Now, when I try to send these commands I receive "irsend: hardware does not
    support sending".

    I'm running OpenSUSE 10.2 and lirc + modules were installed using Yast2.

    What do I need to do to be able to send IR commands?

    Any help here at all?

    I've manually compiled lirc 0.8.1 making sure I use the "--with-transmitter"
    and "--driver=serial" switches.

    irrecord works fine.

    This is what I'm finding in /var/log/lircd:
    Mar 25 22:45:44 box lircd: caught signal
    Mar 25 22:45:46 box lircd: lircd(serial) ready
    Mar 25 22:45:47 box lircd: accepted new client on /dev/lircd
    Mar 25 22:45:47 box lircd: error processing command: send_start 51F510
    PowerToggle
    Mar 25 22:45:47 box lircd: hardware does not support sending
    Mar 25 22:45:47 box lircd: removed client

    /dev/lircd has write permissions:
    box:/var/log # ls -l /dev/lirc*
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 5 2007-03-25 22:36 /dev/lirc -> lirc0
    crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 61, 0 2007-03-25 22:36 /dev/lirc0
    srw-rw-rw- 1 root ir 0 2007-03-25 22:45 /dev/lircd

    Where should I be looking next?
