Patched lirc for raspberry pi


my remote control (thomson rct311) needs the lirc patch for raspberry pi
Tested it with on raspios, remote works again after applying the patch.

I downloaded osmc source, recompiled lirc and applied the patch,
-rw-r–r-- 1 osmc osmc 1210576 Aug 28 21:22 armv7-lirc-osmc.deb

After installation I get:
armv7-lirc-osmc/now 0.9.4-3 armhf [installed,local]
But it fails:
osmc@raspi:~$ irrecord
irrecord: /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/ version `GLIBC_2.28’ not found (required by irrecord)

After removing my installation
OSMC apt list says:
armv7-lirc-osmc/unknown,now 0.9.0-6 armhf [installed,automatic]
Why are installed and source different?
What has to be done to get a working patched version?


I suspect this will work when OSMC moves to Buster.

Which is in testing.

Thanks Tom.

You probably compiled against Buster toolchain but tried to deploy it to a Stretch system, which won’t work
