Hi Tim,

I have applied 'patch-2.2.4-latch' to my parport_pc.c
(in fact I did not use the 'patch -p0' because I could not
find how it works... I basically backed up my original
parport_pc.c and applied the changes manually).
note: any comments on the 'patch -p0' command welcome..
I then recompile the kernel + make modules + make modules_install.

#insmod parport ->OK
#insmod parport_pc
/lib/modules/2.2.4/misc/parport_pc.o: init_module: Device or resource busy

I end up having the same pbm... as for the Ezflyer I guess it will be ok
once I can get my parallel port to work with kernel 2.2.x

Any comments, help, voodoo incantation welcome!

  - RH52 upgraded to:
         . kernel 2.2.4 + parport_pc.c patched with patch-2.2.4-latch
         . + all new RPMS as indicated by www.redhat.com
  - in conf.modules I have
         alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
         options parport_pc io=0x378 irq=7
  - printing was fine with kernel 2.0.36-7 from RH52
  - /etc/printcap exists (created from RH printtool)
