Subjectparport & lp drivers
Hi all, please cc me, I'm off the list,

I had a problem with the vanilla RH6.1 kernel setup. It couldn't
detect my printer:

satisfactory:~# echo test > /dev/lp0
bash: /dev/lp0: Device not configured
I figured out the problem was that the lp driver was getting loaded
before parport_pc. I stuck this in my /etc/conf.modules:

pre-install lp modprobe parport_pc
options lp parport=0

It all works now. This isn't exactly a clean solution. Besides,
it shouldn't be broken in the first place. Any ideas?
