  • socket: on what socket file is the lirc_rpi module registered


Make sure you have the lirc_rpi properly loaded. This can be done like this:

sudo modprobe lirc_rpi gpio_in_pin=17 gpio_out_pin=18

The lirc_rpi uses the BCM GPIO numbering.

Be aware that the lirc_rpi module can only be used by one single program. So you can't use both Lirc and pilight. If you do want to use both, you can use XBian. This distribution has an additional copy of the lirc_rpi module called lirc_rp1.

To load the lirc_rpi module on start-up, you can add it to the /etc/modules file:

# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.
# Parameters can be specified after the module name.
