Public bug reported:

Affects: linux-source-2.6.15 (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

The irda device on my Compal CL56 laptop is not working without manual
configuration. It can be made to work as follows:

$ sudo modprobe irda
$ sudo modprobe irtty_sir
$ sudo apt-get install irda-utils
$ sudo irattach /dev/ttyS0

After a reboot (don't know why that is required) my infrared phone now
shows up in /proc/net/irda/discovery:

$ cat /proc/net/irda/discovery
 IrLMP: Discovery log:
