Thread: lirc package ? (help!)

    lirc package ? (help!)

    I've picked up a Tira-2 IR transceiver, which I'd like to control via my WL-500Gp...but it seems I need the lirc module/package. After many hours of searching and attempted cross-compiling, I am still no nearer this goal.

    Does anyone have this package (lirc) in a suitable format, or could provide it ?

    I am running Olegs firmware ( and as a result of reading I have v0.9.28 uClibc installed (plus optware-devel).

    I've tried building:
    • on my Suse box - error getting build environment up and running
    • via installing colinux on my PC - colinux messed up my wireless config
    • directly on the Asus - ran out of space on my USB stick

    After 8hrs of this I am near to giving up and seeking the help of a kind soul who has already built this, or who is more experienced than I in performing the build.

    You are the lucky one. No kernel drivers needed.
    See for details.

    Other drivers upon request.

    I have changed lirc driver to igorplugusb with

    If there will be multiple requests on that than whole .mk should be restructured as there can only one driver be specified at a configure time.

    create lirc device with
    mknod /tmp/lirc c 61 0
    Post coments here and not in PM.

    Modules are for Oleg firmware of course! But userspace routines are for oleg feed and not for wl500g!

    lirc audio driver for homebrew ir receiver


    i searched this whole forum and i think almost the whole web concerning my little big problem but unfortunately i have no luck in finding proper instructions or hints or maybe i am to green for this.


    I want to control my WL-HDD@(oleg firmware (should be the same for WL500g) with my universal remote, for example to start,stop,pause,forward,back my mp3 playlists or shoutcast streams playing through the USB soudcard. Or just start/stop services like samba, vsftp, thttpd. Or shut down the device via remote control.


    Hardware: IR receiver like described in
    (this is already realized and testet by recording some ir-commands with my audio recorder. i was absolutely impressed as i saw it working )

    Software: This is the point i stuck. What we need is a service which records constantly the mic input and evaluates the ir bursts and somehow comunicates with lircd.


    i tried to follow the insturction ( but i dont have any idea how to compile the source code of PortAudio and Lirc. All my attempts failed. i fail to create a dev environment on the WL-HDD. crosscompiling i didn't tried.


    -is there already a aquivalent solution for my problem? if yes, link?
    -is it possible to create a dev environment on the ASUS devices? if yes, how?
    -in general, how to compile software for the ASUS devices? Any tuts? (i realy like to start from the beginning, like "Hello World!" apps)
    -i am the only one with such ill ideas? (i lost until now 5nights on trying and research)

    As i saw in previous posts i could imagine that you guys are familiar with compiling lirc fitting this above described needs, and beside this this is the only place where i found people enabling lirc for our customized ASUS devices.

    How do I make the

    I've got the make from

    How do I make it?
    (Asus Remote Control p4w Digital Home. Driver is asusdh-lirc-driver.)

    If I do make -f it doesn't know $WGET.
    Are there other variables to define?

    Thank you!

    follow to create oleg-target

    You should have compatible hardware and not some audio driver!
    Maybe some serial driver or GPIO would do!

    I want to setup LIRC on my WL500W to recieve infrared signals from my media centre reciever, which LIRC supports with the mceusb driver (there is a second version, but that requires the 2.6 kernel)

    I have tried to follow the instructions on the page above, but the svn command fails with the following error:

    [admin@Asus /opt]$ svn co optware
    svn: Can't read directory 'optware': Operation now in progress
    I know this has come up on the russian forums, and from a bad automatic translation I think they said to use cross-compilation instead. As there is already a mk file for lirc in the svn. I think it makes sense to try and persue this route and try to edit the file to work with the mceusb driver.....if I can get the SVN command to work.

    Has anyone had any better luck with this?

    Many thanks,
