How to install infraRed on Mandriva 2009.0 NC6000 ?

First Install The package

# urpmi irda-utils

On HP NC6000 you need to edit /etc/sysconfig/irda:

IRDA=yes
#DEVICE=/dev/ttyS2
DEVICE=irda0
#DONGLE=actisys+
DISCOVERY=yes

Download ircp-tray from here. It will ask for dependencies like OBEX utilities and something else missing.

One more step, you need to redirect this:

# echo 9600 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_baud_rate

(you can put it on an boot script to do this once)

Put in System > Preferences > Sessions

Ircp-tray command to start at boot.

Reboot.
