Mandriva: Updated lirc packages fixes issue with dkms-lirc and SMP kernels Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake Dkms-lirc allows one to install LIRC drivers on non-Mandriva kernels. It contains a driver named lirc_parallel.ko which does not work on SMP-enabled kernels, preventing the driver installation on such kernels. The lirc_parallel.ko driver has been removed from the updated package and moved to a separate package named dkms-lirc-parallel.
