Is there any precompiled LIRC package for Freesco 0.3.5?

When you make a request for something you've found "out there" and would like to see implemented under freesco, please do the following ...

1) Post an URL where the source code (+ docs) can be found.
2) Which version of freesco you want it for.

I doubt if this will compile for a 2.0 kernel :(
What device driver did you had in mind?

I tried with '--with-driver=userspace' which is the same as all driver, but no kernel modules will be built. This failed due to too old header files.

I must admit this stuff is extemely well documented, but for the newer linux distro's out there.

I did find a very old <a href='http://www.metzlerbros.org/lirc/index.html' target='_blank'>LIRC package</a> from the original author Ralph Metzler, who quit around 1996. I've downloaded that too and it compiled, but of course is very very old and lacks a lot of the neat stuff that was added since. Because I don't have any of the required hardware, I wasn't able to test if it works other than that is seems to start. I think this one works via serial port but not sure...

I am willing to be a tester if you need one. I have 2 of the old Packard Bell remotes that I KNOW lirc at least used to support, and probably still does.

Of course, since Freesco doesn't support USB, I want only COM-port based homemade IR receivers and transmitters to be supported/
