I changed the printing test to its minimal
requirements: BIOS is NORMAL which is reported as
PCSPP,TRISTATE (this is from 2.4.0-test11 and
similarly for 2.2.18pre21). No probing.
Neither 2.2.18pre21 nor 2.4.0-test11 behaves
properly. They both allow me to write to /dev/lp0
without error. No printing though. Both returns
error if I try to read from /dev/lp0 which I would
expect under this condition.
Now I want to verify if I do something wrong with
the kernel configuration.
For 2.2.18 it is as follow: parport, parport_pc,
pnp_parport, paride, and printer are set to
modules. Pnp and printer_readback are in the
kernel. This is compiled with gcc-22.214.171.124.
For 2.4.0-test11 it is as follows: parport,
parport_pc, printer are modules. parport_pc_fifo,
parport_1284, pnp, isapnp are in the kernel. This
is compiled with gcc-2.95.2. (I do not have easy
access to the recommended compiler.)
Do you see anything obviously wrong here?
