My hard disk crashed and I had to find another one before trying your
kernel.  Now, the system is up again, and your kernel works fine for
me.  I was just a bit confused by the message about initrd.  If I
understand correctly, initrd is currently not supported by arcboot.
Am I right?  It could be a good idea to add a little remark in

Thanks for the answer.  After some googling, it looks like netbsd is
(or at least used to be) able to use the parallel port.


Perhaps is it possible to look at their driver? 

I have finally another question about RTC clock.  It seems that it is
not updated by "hwclock --systohc" (see below).  Am I missing

# hwclock --debug --systohc
hwclock from util-linux-2.12p
Using /dev/rtc interface to clock.
Last drift adjustment done at 1125156038 seconds after 1969
Last calibration done at 1125156038 seconds after 1969
Hardware clock is on UTC time
Assuming hardware clock is kept in UTC time.
Waiting for clock tick...
...got clock tick
Time read from Hardware Clock: 2005/08/27 15:21:32
Hw clock time : 2005/08/27 15:21:32 = 1125156092 seconds since 1969
Time elapsed since reference time has been 0.762593 seconds.
Delaying further to reach the next full second.
Setting Hardware Clock to 15:21:25 = 1125156085 seconds since 1969
ioctl(RTC_SET_TIME) was successful.
Not adjusting drift factor because it has been less than a day since the last calibration.

# hwclock --show ; date
