I have vmware installed with kernel 2.4.9.
I can not use the printer.
Here are the symptoms:
Trying to connect I got the following message
Unsupported parallel port hardware (no PS/2 or ECP mode)
Failed to connect device parallel0
The BIOS has the option ECP+EPP.
The kernel logs:
ppdev0: claim the port first
ppdev0: registered pardevice
ppdev0: released pardevice because user-space forgot
ppdev0: unregistered pardevice
I don't know if this problem began to
occur with k 2.4.9 or before since I
rarely need to use the printer from the guest OS.
I have used it before however.
TIA for any help.
