That was a private post, following your (at first) private posting to
me. Please don't quote it in a public mailing list.

I don't have a /proc/parport directory, so I can't help you there...

I can send details of my entire setup (kernel-config, installed
packages, output of ls -Rl /dev, technical specs of my machine), but I
don't think any of it's relevant, given the nature of your error

Please stop pestering me. I've told you all I know, and given all the
advice I can. I'm sorry that the same hardware appears to be working
for me but not for you, but there's nothing more I can suggest. I don't
mind you posting developments to the list, but please don't put send
stuff direct to me.
