Re(2): [PARPORT] parport_pc: Device or resource busy

thanks for your quick response, but still no clue...

Yes, positive.
It is conf.modules, modules.conf does not exist.

No strange characters anywhere.

Result looks allright? (I have here the post-install in effect)

lilblue:~ # modprobe -c |grep parport
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
options parport_pc io=0x378 irq=none
post-install parport /sbin/modprobe parport_pc

Loading parport_pc just doesn't work - modprobe gives the same error as
lilblue:~ # modprobe parport_pc
lilblue:~ # /2.2.7/misc/parport_pc.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
/lib/modules/2.2.7/misc/parport_pc.o: insmod
o failed
/lib/modules/2.2.7/misc/parport_pc.o: insmod parport_pc failed

During bootup there are some messages from cardmgr/Intel PCIC probe (I think)
cs: IO port probe 0x1000-0x17ff: excluding 0x15e8-0x15ef
(and 2 more)

but none of these would interfere with 0x378.

I suppose this is not related in any way, but I did not specify
floppy=thinkpad (pc is thinkpad 770) as it works without it.

What now?
