Feisty-LIRC wont compile.

I have tried going from source and using Synaptic but still nothing I get the same error everytime.

Here it is:
/usr/src/lirc-0.8.1/drivers/lirc_mceusb2/lirc_mceusb2.c: In function ‘usb_remote_recv’:
/usr/src/lirc-0.8.1/drivers/lirc_mceusb2/lirc_mceusb2.c:469: error: ‘SLAB_ATOMIC’ undeclared (first use in this function)
/usr/src/lirc-0.8.1/drivers/lirc_mceusb2/lirc_mceusb2.c: In function ‘usb_remote_probe’:
/usr/src/lirc-0.8.1/drivers/lirc_mceusb2/lirc_mceusb2.c:705: error: ‘SLAB_ATOMIC’ undeclared (first use in this function)

make[2]: *** [_module_/usr/src/lirc-0.8.1/drivers/lirc_mceusb2] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.20-15-generic'
make[1]: *** [lirc_mceusb2.o] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/lirc-0.8.1/drivers/lirc_mceusb2'
make: *** [all] Error 2
I can't seem to find any information on this ad very little on LIRC. Is there an alternative? All I want is for it to work. If you need any more info just ask...

Forgot to mention that I an using a Windows MediaCenter Remote.

I was able to find a very good tutorial on how to setup it up now the remote recieves signals but wont work for mythtv. How do I got about doing this?

OOPS! I missed the . in ~/.lircrc. But I still have oine thing remaining the External channel changing for my cablebox. Any program to do this or command?
