I have a problem with parport when booting Slackware linux (kernel
The thing is that the system already has a parallel port (ISA) that only
handles PS2 and AT modes.
So, bought a PCI card that can handle ECP and EPP modes (which I
need) and now I'm trying to
make it work. I began by turning the ISA card off in BIOS.
As I said earlier, the problem arises when booting the system. Here is a
part of dmesg:
First, parport correctly identifies my PCI card and the modes associated
dmesg : parport0: PC-style at 0xdcd8 (0xdcc8) [SPP,ECP,ECPEPP,ECPPS2]
Then, the problem begins. Parport identifies it again (in the same boot
sequence) but this
time with only SPP and PS2 capability!
dmesg : parport0: PC-style at 0xdcd8 [SPP,PS2]
So, when I'm trying to use the card, it only shows SPP and PS2
capability although it should be
to run in EPP mode.
Can anyone explain this?
