Activating IrDa on Thinkpad T43 Opensuse 13.1


Dear Members,

My operating system is Opensuse 13.1 on an IBM T43 Thinkpad.

The InfraRed port has been activated in the BIOS config and in the /etc/sysconfig

On starting the service "insserv /etc/init.d/irda" the system is returning the following message:

can't open irda: No such file or directory at /sbin/insserv line 59.

And, true enough, "irda" does not exist in the sbin/insserv directory.

Any assistance in resolving this or pointing me in the right direction shall be gratefully received.

Regards
Simius

Hi...

Assuming IrDA is included in OpenSUSE by default, does this package help get everything configured?

Regards...

you are aware that 13.1 is well past it's End Of Life
and that if you moved over to "Evergreen" that that support ENDS in November -- one month

time to upgrade to OpenSUSE 42.1
