btw, anyone know what I did wrong moving to kernel 2.2.7 from 2.0.36 that's
causing my message log to fill up with: "modprobe: can't locate module
char-major-6" ? and what the likely repercussions are?
If you ever get messages like that, eg char-major.. block-major.. you
can find out what it is by looking in
char-major-6 is the lpt port. so you probably didn't compile in
parport support, or you havn't got it set up correctly in
conf.modules. if you have it compiled as a module try adding:
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
options parport_pc irq=7 dma=3 io=0x378
if you've got a standard ECP/EPP port on lpt1. if it's just
bi-directional, remove the irq and dma arguments.
if you still get the messages. put:
alias char-major-6 parport_lowlevel
in conf.modules aswell.
