Any help on the following problem would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm
running slackware 3.2, with GCC 2.7.2, kernel 2.0.34, PPA 1.42, on a
P166 w/ 40 MB RAM.
I'm trying to get my parallel SyQuest EzFlyer 230MB working in linux,
but I'm having problems. After compiling all the proper support into
linux, loading ppa.o (via modprobe to ensure all modular dependencies
are satisfied) returns this:
ppa: Probing port 3bch
ppa: SPP Port present
ppa: EPP port not supported at this address
ppa: SCSI - 0 host(s) total
In BIOS i've tried setting my parallel port to ECP/EPP, EPP, and just
normal modes, but to no avail. (I get that same msg everytime) How do I
get PPA to detect my drive, or how do i use anything else to mount it?
My printer (which is passed thru the Syquest drive) works perfectly when
the module LP is loaded. Does this need to be removed (the lp module
that is) in order for the drive to work?
