    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?
