Does anyone have a copy of the 1.0.1 64 bit drivers? All of the links that I can find seem to go to the version 1.0.2 drivers, which seem to have autorepeat set waaaay to quickly...

heres a copy of the 1.0.1 drivers the whole lot of them as distributed by Asrock.
@ shiftybugger I suspect v1.0.2 they prolly addressing the drivers going unresponsive arbitrarily a bug they (Asrock) maintain does not exist on their test rigs which IMO they (Asrock) dont actually test in real world conditions or actually at all. There is still missing the motherboard chipset drivers which control/monitor fans, voltages etc I urge ppl to ask Asrock for the drivers and help push them to get the drivers released. However it is true dont upgrade to the 1.0.2 version it is as shiftybugger describes. Please even if not installing report it as a bug to Asrock.
On a side note I read in some posts that people seem to think that start system from shutdown is somehow linked to the lirc drivers, if anyone that believes this is reading, my advice to them is to actually understand this is impossible. (period) this is a bios bug (something to do with power not reaching the CIR header again arbitrarily, I measured it in one occasion and there was ziltch volts when the remote failed to bring system out of total shutdown.
Again guys hope you get your HT's and normal 330's all nice and sorted by now, both Karmic and Jaunty. Despite Karmic's kernel's shortcomings the systems should work relatively normally. Unless of course your fixing what isnt broke or dont have a proper working install being it 100% manual, with script aid or xbmclive.
for the total n00bs or for others that just lazy or cant be bothered I recommend the XBMClive install disk (download FUSBI and create a USB install disk of XBMCLive camelot to get it installed if your having problems installing it from Disk as I was for testing purposes even the repack has issues for me) and remember if it inst broke don't fix it
The wireless vs remote not working makes absolutely no sense logically, theoretically or samba browsing vs remote, while my Lirc drivers only stopped responding on resume (fixed with Lirc resume script) or from total shutdown (which is a bios bug) the only thing that ocurres to me is that power is not going through to CIR header constantly which could be related to bios or a possible fault with the LM317T Variable Voltage Regulator. if you are a bit of a geek and have the KNOW HOW and found that it is faulty you can buy these for about a £1 and replace it or alternatively (recommended) send it for RMA or replace it completely.
Since these whole machines family were assembled in China it's a big oops regardless if most of the components are made in Japan.

Anyone of you have seen my modified livecd version?
- Asrock 330HT IR remote control drivers (version 1.01) installed on the cd
- Coretemp.ko compiled and added to the cd
- Nvclock added to the cd (nvidia ion temperature check)
- Advancedconfig.xml added to display temperatures
- runXBMC modified in order to load a customized guisettings.xml (hdmi video, hdmi audio, upnp on, remote controls on, etc)
- Samba, Proftpd installed
- Alaska and Rapier 3.06 skins added
- AMD/Intel drivers and bootoptions removed (100mb free space)

I need a bit of a help
I've got Karmic on my asrock, and lirc was working fine from the beginning, but two days ago I installed some ubuntu automatic updates. Since then, it's not working, irw won't show anything.
(tried to reinstall driver)
how could I find out where is the problem?
thanks for the help in advance!

Hi. I believe I can add some more detail to the error reports about LIRC stop working when updating.
The error seems to be that module wb677 cannot be loaded.
I used kernel 2.6.31-14 and everything worked. Then I updated with 2.6.31-17 and it stopped working. I went to boot menu and chose 2.6.31-14 and again, LIRC worked.
It seems that wb677 works with 2.6.31-14 and not 2.6.31-17. Using the minimal image, I can get VDPAU to work, using the ubuntu CD image I cannot. Problem is, using the minimal image delivers 2.6.31-17. Is there any way to use the minimal image and still get kernel version 2.6.31-14?

The lirc modules still work for me, but they need some work after the new kernel is installed:
1. Install the 2 debs (binary module and src) from the asrock site
2. sudo apt-get install lirc-modules-source
...depending on the installed version you might need to change the following commands a little:
3. sudo dkms add -m lirc-nct677x-src -v 1.0.2-ubuntu9.10
4. sudo dkms build -m lirc-nct677x-src -v 1.0.2-ubuntu9.10
5. sudo dkms install -m lirc-nct677x-src -v 1.0.2-ubuntu9.10
6. restart lirc (and perhaps xbmc)
As for slowing down the remote, just edit the file /usr/share/lirc/remotes/lirc_wb677/lircd.conf.wb677 and change the "gap" variables (2 or 3 I believe), 150000 works well for me.

Great info Monty! Thanks.
I would like to add my experience to this page.. Do NOT use 64 bit! Maybe I'm the only one that did not understand this, but I had problems with both VDPAU support and remote control while using 64 bit linux. As soon as I switched to 32 bit everything worked.
