Description Nik Raub 2006-08-20 06:48:15 UTC
The file /etc/init.d/irda provided by net-wireless/irda-utils-0.9.16-r1 (current stable version) contains the statement 

depend() {
	use serial

referring to /etc/init.d/serial that, to the extent of my knowledge, is long gone from baselayout. In any case, the irda service only works on my machine if I comment this statement out.

Err, it's still provided by sys-apps/setserial ebuild for people that need it. Anyway, I don't see why it should fail because of this, it doesn't depend on it, just tells to start after serial has started if it's available in that runlevel.

Reopen with emerge --info.
Comment 2 Nik Raub 2006-08-20 07:10:20 UTC
I think my problem was due to the fact that i still had an old and broken /etc/init.d/serial lying around. I deleted it and now everything works fine. Sorry about the premature bugreport.

OK, thanks for reporting back.
