This system has a problem with the parallel port under debian; can anyone
help? When booting after a unix session, the cmos report shows
"parallel: none". If I go in under dos after a unix session, indeed the
printer fails. If during that session I run norton's diagnostic program
and test the lpt port, it finds nothing wrong -- except that next time
the cmos report shows "parallel: 378". The (distributed) debian kernel
appears to reset to no parallel device.
Any ideas? I've tryed with lpt.o both in and out of modules, to no avail.
Who is writing to cmos?
