[... using EPP only gives better performance with ZIP-drive...]
Well, first of all: I managed to patch the kernel (now working with
2.4.0test1-ac9), but I found out the next thing:
Because I said to my BIOS to use EPP instead of ECP+EPP, I can't print
anymore with my printer (through my ZIP-drive). When I change the
BIOS-setting to ECP+EPP, I can print. So now I have 2 options:
- Use ECP+EPP, be benefited because I can use my printer (which I
sometimes do need) but have to wait rather long to copy big files to my
- Use EPP Only, getting better performance by my ZIP-drive (although not
yet as it should be), but having to switch my printer-cable with my
ZIP-cable from the moment I want to print.
Now as long as I don't need my printer very often (as opposed to my
ZIP-drive that I do use often) I will stick with EPP only.
But still it should be optimized. So can anyone help me?
My configuration: PC + Parallel Zip Drive (ZIP100 - ppa) + HP Deskjet
Linux kernel 2.4.0test1-ac9.
If necessary I can attach my settings of my configuration of xconfig
(12K) at a mail, so if you think it could help, please mail me, so I can
mail it to you.
