I just upgraded my motherboard (VIA MPV3 + K6-II-3D-500Mhz), and I can't get
my parallel port ZIP-100 drive to work in linux, it works in DOS.
If I use my old kernel 2.0.34 with ppa version 1.42, after loading ppa, I get
a message about scsi bus resetting, and never finishes reseting the bus.
If I use kernel 2.2.14 the machine crashes (kernel panic) after loading the
ppa module, when an attempt is made to access /dev/sda, with something about
"Ieee, Interupt handler.....in swapper process, no sync".
I have tried different bios settings for the parallel port, but it is always
I think I saw some chips on the motherboard with "winbond" written on them,
and so I guess I may have a winbond chipset parallel port, which from the
archives has caused problems.
1) Does this sound familiar to anyone, is this a typical problem of a winbond
2) Is there a kernel patch for a 2.2.x kernel, or is one about to released in
3) I see that some winbond detection was added to parport in kernel 2.3.46,
will this fix the problem, and if so is there a parport patch for 2.2.x
