I am having the same problem. I assume bluetooth is working, I can open wmgui and pair a remote and see all the button data and control the leds and stuff that wmgui lets you do. wminput causes an error unable to open uinput.
I was able to compile from 11.3, but I had to modify some of the source code. #74 (libcwiid/bluetooth.c hci_remote_name should be hci_read_remote_name)](http://abstrakraft.org/cwiid/ticket/74) deals with the only part of the compile I had trouble with.
