I've got an Evation IRMan infrared receiver and I'm trying to use it on my main box. I've tried it there, and on my laptop, and on my file server. The IRMan works on the file server, but not on the laptop or the desktop. The laptop and my desktop are running debian/unstable, the file server is running SuSE 7.1. The desktop and laptop are running kernel 2.4.17, and the file server is running 2.4.0. I have used minicom on the serial ports of the desktop and the laptop to talk to other PCs, but for some reason, simply listening on the port to get data from the IRMan (for example "cat < /dev/ttyS0" while I mash buttons on my remote) doesn't work. The serial devices are character nodes with major number 4 and minor number 64 on each box, and my user has rw access to the device on each box. What else do I need to do to get this working? Thanks!
