i have no other irda devices. and nothing shows in the
/proc/net/irda/discovery file.

i have my main serial port on this laptop disabled. i have a lt_modem
(win-modem drivers package) installed that gives me /dev/ttySLT0. on
startup, i do have one called /dev/ttyS1 (but i believe that this is my
irda device that is assigned via the laptops bios.)

and then (after i load the ircom/irtty modules)

also, i get a mess of /dev/tty0-63, (i believe these are the terminal

mmm...maybe after unloading the lt_serial and lt_modem modules (for the
ttySLT0 device for my winmodem), it did create some activity on the
ircomm1 or 2 port (irdadump).

however, i'm more curious as to exactly *what* should be happening
next!  what activity should i be *seeing* within the log files that i
should be seeing right now? or, shouldn't i be seeing something w/i
/proc/net/irda/discovery?  i'm going to try scanning thru the irda howto
again, but the documentation is lacking info on *what activity i should
be seeing* after i get these modules successfully loaded. (ie, smc
device discovered and shown in /var/log/messages, etc)

yes. i'm entirely new to irda devices.

i've also just posted my scratching to the irda mailling list ;-) (where
they should be ;-)

probabely my main question for this list is to find-out if anybody has
even gotten their nokia 8290 working with gnokii. i've gotten word from
the author of mygnokii2, that the device is supposedly working with that
branch of code, however, it keeps looking to /dev/ttyS1 (mmm...disable
the device...right...i'll do that later...mmmm)
