Hi Michael,

I've been looking into the parport issue.

Your ACPI _PRS method does look a little unusual (and possibly broken), but
it might work if we assume that all of the other resources not mentioned are
to be disabled.

I'd like to see how the PnP layer is interpreting this, and also what your
_CRS method is giving us.

Could I see the output of:

/sys/devices/pnp0/00:XX/resources

and:

/sys/bus/pnp/devices/00:XX/options

where XX is the function number of your parport device... In one of your
earlier emails it was "08".

I appreciate your help.

Thanks,
Adam
