Subjectparport problems with devfs
Hello!

I attached the problem occured with parport and devfs.
I don't exactly know where the problem in the parport source
is. If someone has a patch for it, I will test it.

Nico


# Loading the parport and parport_pc modules for my parallelport
flapp:/home/user/nico/gpm-1.19.3 # modprobe parport_pc

# is there an entry in /dev ?
flapp:/home/user/nico/gpm-1.19.3 # ls /dev/
. cdroms fb initctl mem ptmx root usb
.. console full input misc pts shm vc
.devfsd cpu gpmctl kmem null pty tty vcc
apm_bios discs ide log port random urandom zero

# What does the kernel message say ?

# Have a look what lp0 has been before
From /usr/src/linux/Documentation/ :
6 char Parallel printer devices
0 = /dev/lp0 Parallel printer on parport0
1 = /dev/lp1 Parallel printer on parport1

# make our own device out of /dev
flapp:/ # mknod /lp0 c 6 0

# has anything happened ? No!
flapp:/ # ls /dev/
. cdroms fb initctl mem ptmx root usb
.. console full input misc pts shm vc
.devfsd cpu gpmctl kmem null pty tty vcc
apm_bios discs ide log port random urandom zero

# Use the printer the easiest way :)
flapp:/ # cat /tmp/* > lp0

# And now...
flapp:/ # ls /dev/
. cdroms fb initctl mem printers random urandom zero
.. console full input misc ptmx root usb
.devfsd cpu gpmctl kmem null pts shm vc
apm_bios discs ide log port pty tty vcc

# there is now the entry printers/0.
