Hi there,
I've a laptop with CentOS 8 and a PC with CentOS 7. After 3 years of break 
I was Scuba Diving last 3 weeks. Back at home I wish to download all dive 
logs from my divecomputer connext via IrDA to my PC.

But no kernel modul for IrDA was found.

[root at rechner1 ~]# modprobe ircomm
modprobe: FATAL: Module ircomm not found in directory 
[root at rechner1 ~]# modprobe ircomm_tty
modprobe: FATAL: Module ircomm_tty not found in directory 
[root at destn40768 ~]# 

[root at rechner1 ~]# lsusb | grep -i irda
Bus 002 Device 011: ID 9710:7780 MosChip Semiconductor MCS7780 4Mbps Fast 
IrDA Adapter
[root at rechner1 ~]#

Same with CentOS7

How do I get IrDA support?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Kind regards
