Description stano 2000-04-22 10:49:15 UTC
If I boot the bootnet disk (both stock 6.2 and 20000407) and try to do a
network installation over PLIP, it cannot load the plip module due to
unresolved externals regarding parport_pc.

I didn't fully verified it, but I looked up the install disk contents and
it seems like there is parport.o in the modules.cgz archive, but
parport_pc.o was forgotten. modules.dep does contain the dependency to

Comment 1 stano 2000-04-22 12:58:59 UTC
Hmm - this is not so easy - it's not only dependency thing, we need to be able
to specify parameters to parport_pc to specify IRQs. Is there some way to do
this automagically without /etc/modules.conf?

No, I'm afraid not. :-(
