lirc_i2c module doesn't work, consumes cpu

Asked by Curtis Porter on 2010-06-06

I've been hit by bug #550369, which supposedly has been fixed. I've got all the latest updates, uninstalled the old kernel (2.6. 32-21-generic) and reinstalled both the kernel (2.6.32-22-generic) and the lirc packages (0.8.6-0ubuntu4.1), but still have the problems.

Here's the output that shows my Hauppauge PVR-350 being detected as a Leadtek IR, as described in the bug report above:
$ dmesg|grep lirc
[ 23.581513] lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, major 61
[ 26.674372] lirc_i2c: chip 0x0 found @ 0x18 (Leadtek IR)
[ 26.674375] lirc_dev: lirc_register_driver: sample_rate: 10

Is there anything additional that I should need to do besides install the updates to get this fix?

Thanks,
Curtis

I needed to install lirc-modules-source. After that and a reboot, the problem was resolved.
