Hello all!

I've just started to experiment with Red Hat's Raw Hide x86 releases, currently
1.1.0. It's interesting right now becasue it uses a 2,1 kernel, i.e., 2.1.123.

However, I can't load ppa to get my parport Zip drive working. lsmod reports:

Module Size Used by
nfs 31724 1 (autoclean)
lockd 27784 1 (autoclean) [nfs]
sunrpc 48128 1 (autoclean) [nfs lockd]
parport_probe 2864 0 (autoclean) (unused)
parport 6256 0 [parport_probe]
sound 56152 0 (autoclean) (unused)
soundcore 1948 3 (autoclean) [sound]
psaux 2044 1 (autoclean)
smc9194 6004 1 (autoclean)

and modprobe ppa gets me:

/lib/modules/preferred/scsi/ppa.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
parport: Device or resource busy

Any hints?

Tried modprobe scsi_debug, but all I still get is:

ppa: Version 2.01
ppa: parport reports no devices.

Thanks for any hints.
