[Bug 1124581] Re: 3.8 kernel breaks irexec


I suspect the patch at
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-960130-start-0.html#7313702 may
help, but I don't know enough about compiling kernel modules to test
this myself.

  3.8 kernel breaks irexec

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Problem: lirc hangs forever when I have a lircrc file when I use 3.8.
  3.7 and previous kernels worked fine on Ubuntu 12.04 where I
  originally did some tests.

  How to reproduce:
  (1) Start 13.04 live cd
  (2) sudo apt-get install lirc
  (3) sudo nano /etc/lirc/lircrc
  (4) copy your config, here is mine:
  remote = devinput
  button = KEY_POWER
  prog = irexec
  repeat = 0
  config = python /home/script.py
