    Thank you for your kind advice.
    I had given up for the time being, actually :) ...

    These are the relevant setting from /usr/src/linux/.config
    I had been advised not to enable PNP, in general. I guess
    I need to, in order to use Ftape with Trakker. Will get
    to that now.

    # CONFIG_PARPORT_OTHER is not set

    # Plug and Play support
    # CONFIG_PNP is not set

    "make clean" yes, but not distclean.
    If enabling PNP doesn't change things, I will try again
    using "make distclean".

    >and recompile ftape _after_ compiling the kernel?

    Will try again with PNP enabled, distclean, etc.

    Thanks for the tip!
