Motivation for this change

After spending a few hours trying to install LIRC I realized that many of my issues were from a lack of default settings that could get the program up and running. This will allow many users to let LIRC run out of the box.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • [x ] NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nox --run "nox-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Assured whether relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits

To bad this was not added in the first place. I would prefer having sane default options, that can be extended by extraOptions. Do you think users would need to extend the default options in the common case?

My configuration file looks as follows:

driver = ftdi
device = product=0x6015

I set none of the fault values in my configuration file without any problems. Could you please specify which problems you have?
