I would appreciate it if you could be more specific... We, as Debian
maintainers, have no idea what versions of lirc are shipped with Ubuntu
and with which versions of Ubuntu, and what kernels and what changes are
made to the kernels in Ubuntu. It just a different distro, it is very
hard for us to help you!

If you really want our help, please try installing Etch. Can I suggest
you try one of the latest version of our Installer?
The Net istall Cd (only 100MB) can be found at:

Maybe this version fixes your problem, and remember to press F3 as you
boot the CD and try out the new Grafical Installer :)
It rocks!
