My new installation of RH 6.1 upon a pc using a
Asus K7M slot a motherboard is unable to
detect or use the parallel port for the printer. Commands
like "cat file > /dev/lp0" (and lp1 and lp2) results in the
message "/dev/lp0 no such device". The reactions
from tunelp and printtest via printtool are similar.
I have tried adding the three lines suggested in the
recent print-howto into the conf.modules, without
success. And I have tried to change all PnP settings
in the bios of the motherboard to non PnP settings.
I have windows98 on the same pc, the printer works
perfectly on lpt1 Windows the reported setup is for
input/output area 0378-037F
I would imagine that somehow one could force
linux to use those, but I dont know how.
I, for example, I do "tunelp /dev/lp0 -i 5" the
reaction is again "no such device".
