No configuration options when (re)installing lirc

While trying out Dev1[Jessie_1-0-0-RC2]x64-live, adding lirc (0.9.0~pre1-1.2 *) did not include ncurses/terminal options for specifying remote/IR-blaster etc - is this expected/normal?
(and is this the right place to ask?)
Another package ran ncurses in terminal correctly*.

Re: No configuration options when (re)installing lirc

Yes, this is a good place to ask. I don't know lirc, but it should work the same as in debian. That package wasn't altered.

The desktop-live has the same packages as a default desktop install, and the minimal-live has much less (and more, in some ways). Maybe some package is missing and isn't listed as a Depends, but I don't know what that might be.

So ... should this question be moved to "Issues" then?

Re: No configuration options when (re)installing lirc

I just installed lirc in devuan, and the messages I get at the end of the install say that there is no /etc/lircd.conf and to configure it manually. Running 'dpkg-reconfigure lirc' returns without any messages and without runing the ncurses debconf. Installing the same package in debian jessie does not give me the messages about the config file. Running 'dpkg-reconfigure lirc' again returns without any messages and without ncurses debconf. So, I don't know if it's broken or not. Can you use it? Do you have or know what goes in the missing config file?

I assumed the configuration file should have been produced by the installation script from the options presented. That's how I remember it working in the past.  Apparently that's changed.
Was there any indication of how to configure manually, or where to find a closest-match configuration?
