I use Mandrake 9.2 RC2 and I have added following line into my /etc/rc.d/rc.local
/usr/local/sbin/irexec --daemon /root/.lircrc
The irexec loads without any error. If I do ps -fe | grepe irexec, it lists the process.
I log as a non-root user into KDE and the remote does not work. If I goto terminal and su and then tried the remote, still does not work.
However, if I goto terminal and issue the following, then it works (either as root or non-root)
/usr/local/sbin/irexec /home/myuser/.lircrc (as non-root user)
/usr/local/sbin/irexec /root/.lircrc (as root user)
I have no clue. Can someone please explain what am I doing wrong?
