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
/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!
