parport printer problem under kernel 2.6 with asus mainboard


are there known problems with parport on asus mainboards or is it just
my fault? /dev/lp0 behaves like /dev/null, everything I print just
disappears, no error or log messages. Even echo "hello world" > /dev/lp0
doesn't do anything.

Under 2.4 kernels everything works as expected.

mainboard: asus a7v133
distribution: unstable (sid)
kernel: kernel-image 2.6.5-1-k7

$ lsmod | grep lp 

> lp                     11268  0
> parport                41672  2 parport_pc,lp
