Once 2.6.37 reach stable I think we should go for that as a standard solution. I am not sure it will be officially supported in Lucid so that leaves xbmcbuntu - 10.10 unless we can convince someone to cook a new live build.

your talking about maverick drivers,mate so you know XBMCLive is not BASED on maverick but linux.
I prefer finding a fix, rather then pass out on bug fixes, just because...
Unfortunatly only limited good how tos are found... IM sure in your case your missing out...
BUt your box your choice.

Quote:your talking about maverick drivers,mate so you know XBMCLive is not BASED on maverick but linux.No, thats not what I am talking about. I have tested both downgrading xbmcLive from 26 => 25 and upgrading to an un-official .37 and I know very well that it is based on Lucid. Both solution is working fine but the latter is perhaps more risky. Downgrading to 25 I think have to be regarded as a safe solution.
Never mind. I know you have a fix and I will keep out of the discussion.

[Live 10.00] Dharma Lirc but based on a Ubuntu 10.10 - guyf - 2010-12-29 21:14
As you read in http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=676315&postcount=13
You'll see that ubuntu backported some of the lirc into the kernel stuff so you don't need to install a 2.6.37 the ubuntu kernel 2.6.35 is good for me.

Perhaps you misunderstand me, I was merely trying to establish what your suggestion had to do with lirc drivers. since so little details.
If that unnoficial kernel solution works for you, perhaps it would be of interest to others...
What Im saying is do an how-to so as to present information in how-to fix in different ways.
I would be intersted reading what you would have to post, I think your quite able so please share??
I vote you should post your solution... I like choice and encourage it.

When I downgrade to 2.6.32-25 (from Live -26) I use the .deb from asrock.
When I upgrade to 2.6.37 I dont need to do anything else except re-install nvidia.
Actually when I follow the link in kridued's post above I see what I guess is the latest version of your guide. It looks very clear, I think you have improved it since the first time I saw it, at that time I got the impression that it was too much of a workaround. Now it looks fine.

Ok, interesting that they have released a 10.10 based live. However, I am not sure what else is included in the freakLive, my dutch is a bit rusty.
But if 2.6.35 does work with 330HT that is very interesting! There seem to be a 2.6.35 available for Lucid. I will test that when I have some time.

Decided to try out Dharma 10 yesterday and trash my perfectly working (apart suspend/autoresume issue) ASRock. Luckily I had a spare HDD to play with as due to the lack of suspend working I decided to buy myself a SSD to speed up the boot process.
Anyways, point of this post? To thank X3lectric for his remote How-to as this got my remote working with no issues both times I installed Dharma from scratch (did a trial run on my old HDD first)
I tried doing just an upgrade from 9.11 to 10 but although the xbmc upgrade worked perfectly I assume my kernel was too old for the remote drivers? Each time I tried to step trough the How-to it would fail so I was left with a partial working remote, fully functional within xbmc but would not boot the ASRock. As I don't know how to do a kernel upgrade I went for a clean rebuild and it all works well......apart from that damn autoresume issue
So thanks X3lectric for taking the trouble to write up the How-to
