Description:

The irexec.service fails to start on boot, because it runs before lircd.service. Starting manually after boot works ok.

Additional info:
* package version: lircd 1:0.9.4.d-1

Overriding lircd.service with:

[Service]
Type=forking
PIDFile=/var/run/lirc/lircd.pid
ExecStart=
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/lircd

and irexec.service with:

Requires=lircd.service
After=lircd.service

solves the problem.

Steps to reproduce:

- systemctl enable lircd.service
- systemctl enable irexec.service
- reboot

These files come from upstream, not from Arch. You'll want to talk to them about it.

This has been fixed in the development branch of lirc (see linked ticket). The Arch wiki needs some refreshing, btw.

The devel branch is quite a change, and cannot really be used to update 0.9.4d. However, I have pushed the patch for this issue also on the release-0_9_4 branch where it's available.
