Hi all,

Let me just give the results of my experiences and then ask 2 questions.

I've upgraded from kernel 2.0.36 to 2.2.3 hoping to see the imm driver
included in the new kernel. And , I'm happy, it is. I then even discover
that there is some support for daisy-chaining with the tmw patches. So I
tried the tmw1 (it was the only one at that time). Yes, the printer is
seen and I can print some things. Unfortunately, only the first lines of
the documents are printed. Back to the parport home page, I discover 3 new
versions of tmw: 2, 3, and 4. I thus installed version 4 and tried to
recompile the kernel. Here come the problems. It does not compile
(Undefined reference to memset in misc.a (parport_1284something.o) at link
time) I tried with tmw3: same thing. But tmw2 is compiling AND working
(the zip works and I can print whole documents).

So my questions are:

Is it worth trying to make tmw4 compile (I already spent a big part of last
night to find what the problem is, without any success)?

What do I have to do for the imm module being loaded automagically (I, for
now, have to do an "insmod imm" as root, which is not very userfriendly

And finally, keep up the good work. It's fantastic.
