(sorry about earlier chopped-off message)
Has anyone managed to get LIRC to run on FreeBSD 6.0?
I have a small receiver on the serial port, /dev/cuad0 on 6.0.
irrecord can't open /dev/cuad0:
# irrecord -d /dev/cuad0 /tmp/test.conf

irrecord: could not open /dev/cuad0
irrecord: irman_init(): Operation timed out
irrecord: could not init hardware (lircd running ? --> close it, check permissions)
lircd runs, but as soon as irw is run, exits with this log entry:

A quick web search seems to show people using this, although perhaps not
