lirc init script hangs in udev -- timeout

Bug #176616 reported by HPO on 2007-12-15
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
lirc (Ubuntu)
Mario Limonciello

Bug Description

Binary package hint: lirc

My /etc/init.d/lirc tries to circumvent a block if started by udev. It looks for $3 to be 'udev'.

Actually, the way the init is started by udev, parameter *$4* is set to 'udev'!

Therefore, while starting my HTPC, udev starts lirc, which in turn calls udevsettle to wait... And my startup hangs for two minutes.

Correcting the parameter number corrects the problem.
