Parallel Printer Port Problem
I recently got the newest Dell Latitude CPx laptop and I've installed it with stable 2.2.18. I've got about everything worked out but the sound and the parallel printer port. I need help with the parport. It won't work. Here's everything I can think of to help:
- parport and parport_pc support are compiled into the kernel as modules
- parallel printer is compiled as well with printer readback turned on.
- modprobe shows the following:
root-bash# modprobe -d parport
Module matching parport: /lib/modules/2.2.18-3/misc/parport.o
- syslog has this to say:
Jan 2 18:21:35 localhost kernel: parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778) [SPP,ECP,ECPPS2]
Jan 2 18:21:35 localhost kernel: parport_probe: failed
Jan 2 18:21:35 localhost kernel: parport0: no IEEE-1284 device present.
Jan 2 18:21:35 localhost kernel: lp0: using parport0 (polling).
* I think that printer readback is the 1284 thing.
any help is appreciated...jc
