determine the chip you have. Something like nsc-ircc, sms etc. nsc is
for the national semiconductor. You can look at the manual that came
with the laptop to know what controller you have. Otherwise you can
download `findchip` which will check for the presence of the popular
If you have serial.ko (8250)compiled in to the kernel, disable the
serial line for the port on which your irda controller is
attached. (setserial /dev/ttyS[0|1] uart none)
Otherwise, if you have it all as modules, rmmod the 8250_* stuff and
also serial_core. Then modprobe the serial driver (nsc-ircc, or smsrc,
etc). Then modprobe irda, modprobe ircomm, modprobe
icomm-tty. irattach irda0 -s will make the irda available for
communication between the mobile and the comp.
You can use `irdadump` to see if it all worked.
