Version: 0.8.0-3
Severity: important
Tags: experimental

Since ubuntu/dapper doesn't include a usable version of LIRC, I took lirc
from debian
testing.  It appears that IR transmissions aren't functional in dapper.  IR
reception (using mceusb &  mceusb2 drivers) seems to work fine.
I have used transmitters that are proven to be working on WinLirc machines,
and a configuration
known to be working on a gentoo machine.  I verified this on my personal
amd64 box, a mythtv x86 server,
and a mythtv x86 frontend.  The IR diode will light up, but only for a short
period of time as compared to
a working IR transmission from gentoo.
