Now, we must know:
- if your specific Suse setup disables LPT.
- your computer boots with LPT disabled.
=> Boot a rescue system from your suse cds,
and execute "lssuperio" from there
A candidate fiddling intimately with superio
could be linux "infrared support" modules or probes,
even when they are unloaded the effect would persist.
You could "mv" them away from /lib/modules and retry,
don't know where you can find (user-mode) probes.
Note: some laptops have Windows utilities which
can set BIOS parameters. (Of course "lssupperio"
could easily be expanded to enable your port, too).
