CONFIG_IRDA: IrDA subsystem support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_IRDA has multiple definitions:

IrDA (infrared) subsystem support found in net/irda/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_IRDA:

Help text

Say Y here if you want to build support for the IrDA (TM) protocols. The Infrared Data Associations (tm) specifies standards for wireless infrared communication and is supported by most laptops and PDA's.

To use Linux support for the IrDA (tm) protocols, you will also need some user-space utilities like irattach. For more information, see the file Documentation/networking/irda.txt. You also want to read the IR-HOWTO, available at http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto.

If you want to exchange bits of data (vCal, vCard) with a PDA, you will need to install some OBEX application, such as OpenObex : http://sourceforge.net/projects/openobex/

To compile this support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called irda.
