Hi guys,

I made a new version of the script:
version 1.2-rc2
http://yellowprotoss.ye.funpic.org/w...ller-1.2rc2.sh

I corrected the lack of libs. It should work even better (never perfect but by far you can have it working on Debian for sure). Fedora, Gentoo, that may be another story

Best regards

There was some different version, when we with a friend did fight to make it work.

So I create stable, testing and unstable folders.

The file rc2400-autoinstaller-1.2rc2.sh should be the last stable working one:

trying

I get it to work with lirc and your script but it keeps freezing up on me on starup.

When it freezes i kill/remap/reinstall delete reinstall and mess around a bit more and it works. BUt after a restart it freezes again. Even after running the line

"killall -e lircd rc2400 ; /usr/bin/rc2400 -udp -d 0x147a:0xe017 & sleep 1s ; lircd -n -H udp /etc/lirc/rc2400.conf &"

it won't unfreez. Still after reinstall and rerun restart it will lock up again. Any help would be very very very much appreciated.

sorry for the english

I am suspecting we have different linux booting steps due do different distros.
I am using Debian because it is very simple and stable (has huge huge repositories).

The occuring locking of the lirc irda usb (so red light that appears), with which linux distro you have that ?
(we have red hat that hangs apparently, maybe red hat is too slow to boot, and we should place it even earlier ... )
The earlier we starts

the better (it wont lock up, ie the red light)

Ubuntu is like debian (but in a very unstable way)

I choosed S18
you could maybe try to lower the 18 to lower values ...

Code:
echo "Preparing the files, to avoid locking up, at boot"
echo "File: /etc/rc2.d/S18rc2400" 
echo "" > "/etc/rc2.d/S18rc2400"

Tell you something very funny

Ubuntu is like windows i think. If i do a cold boot it locks ( sometimes 4 out of 6 times ) after its on and locked i do a restart it works.

If i do a shutdown and the power on again it locks but on reboot or even reset button it works like a sharm . Think maybe there is something in the bios to enable usb boot or something like that that locks the device.

IR receiver shutsdown

Hi all,

I have a problem with the Formosa ir-receiver aswell, my problem is that it only receives one key press (successfully thought) but after that it does not respond at all. If I unplug it and plug it in again I can receive another keypress.

Has enyone else seen this?

Regards,
Håkan

Apologies for bringing back old threads, but this thread was the only one that actually helped me get my RC2400 working on Linux.

I can now get proper responses when running irw, though I still haven't managed to get the remote to work with XBMC.

The reason I'm posting though isn't just to say thanks, but to ask why the configuration file for lirc wasn't submitted to the lirc database. It would've made it much easier to find, considering it took me a while to find this thread.
