    Which version, exactly?

    There isn't a Red Hat Linux 6.5. Which version do you mean?

    I expect that the difference is the 2.2 kernel vs. 2.4 kernel.

    How about if you rebuild the kernel without IEEE 1284 support? That
    will disable some boot-time parallel port chipset probes. In
    particular, it means that the kernel won't even know about the ECR.

    It sounds like you aren't initialising the ECR to the value that you
    need it to be. Is that the case?
