Subject[OOPS] 2.4.13+preemptive lp0/devfs
Good day!

Hit this oops and thought you all might like to look at it:
Kernel version 2.4.13 vanilla with Robert Love's Premptive Patch.

ksymoops 2.4.3 on i686 2.4.13-p1. Options used
-V (default)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)
-l /proc/modules (default)
-o /lib/modules/2.4.13-p1/ (default)
-m /boot/ (default)

Warning: You did not tell me where to find symbol information. I will
assume that the log matches the kernel and modules that are running
right now and I'll use the default options above for symbol resolution.
If the current kernel and/or modules do not match the log, you can get
more accurate output by telling me the kernel version and where to find
map, modules, ksyms etc. ksymoops -h explains the options.

1 warning issued. Results may not be reliable.

The above happened after doing a checkpc -f in my startup scripts.

lp, parport_pc and parport were all modules that weren't loaded till
the checkpc ran.

I had just turned on devfs, and this happened.

Also: /dev/lp0 had incorrect (unwritable) permissions after being

Hope this is helpful.
