Comment 59 for bug 666493

At least for my iMon ultrabay, I can get it working by manually downloading the kernel (pub/kernel/v3.0/linux-3.0.16.tar.gz of your favourite mirror, for example) then modifying the included Makefile, following this guide (http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/build-linux-kernel-module-against-installed-kernel-source-tree.html) and compiling and manually modprobing the imon and lirc_dev modules, then changing the lirc set up (with dpkg-reconfigure lirc) to use the linux devinput system, and I have at least some of my IT keys working and lcdproc also now works without a hitch.
