Well, at least I think I have the problem solved... Let's see:
1) My ZIP drive is under /dev/sda*, so I entered in /etc/conf.modules :
alias block-major-8 ppa
2) In /lib/modules/2.0.36/modules.dep , I changed the line regarding ppa
3) To stop depmod from overwriting this file at every boot, I copied the
modules.dep file to modules.dep.ppa, and appended to my rc.local file:
cp /lib/modules/2.0.36/modules.dep.ppa /lib/modules/2.0.36/modules.dep
A bit of a "dirty" fix, but now the ZIP modules are automatically loaded
and unloaded, and I can use my parallel printer on the same port without
su'ing to root every time I need to use the ZIP.
Any tip on how to make depmod "behave", so that steps 2) and 3) is done
automagically by depmod instead?
