Description Tupone Alfredo gentoo-dev 2004-12-17 00:50:18 UTC
I seems to need the nsc-ircc driver. In my laptop, with 32 bit kernel, I load this module to be able to use IRDA (well, just some dumped message for now). In the 64 bit kernel I cannot find it.
Its presence in the menu seems to depend on the selection of ISA. ISA is not there; I thought it is removed cause is an amd64.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

I suppose should be assigned to some kernel developer, changing source to let user select ISA also on a 64 bit system.
I think ISA support is necessary to use this chip, and to access to other MB resource.
But I'm not an expert on that

which kernel are you using?
Comment 3 Tupone Alfredo gentoo-dev 2004-12-17 07:01:59 UTC
Using the 2.6.9-r9
Comment 4 Tupone Alfredo gentoo-dev 2004-12-17 07:14:59 UTC
Comment 5 Tupone Alfredo gentoo-dev 2004-12-20 03:55:56 UTC
I found something about making nsc_ircc not depending upon ISA

This is not a specific problem with gentoo's kernel patches, please file a bug for this at
Comment 7 Tupone Alfredo gentoo-dev 2005-06-25 04:06:06 UTC
2.6.12 kernel version seems to fix that
