Phew. Ok, I've just disabled that.
However, my new static config did not work either.
In the meantime I applied patch-2.2.12-ppdev1 to my source tree.
Did not help. Ok. Now I will do an additional version:

Won't work: - Static with parport, parport_pc, lp, ieee 1284
            - Static with parport, parport_pc, lp
            - Modular with modules for parport, parport_pc, lp, ieee 1284
To test: - Static ieee 1284, modular parport, parport_pc, lp
         - Version 1 above with your cat suggestion

Seems to work: Modular with parport, parport_pc, lp

Any more?

Best regards, Jens (getting more and more confused :-/ )
