Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 136998
parallel port not enabled in Fedora Core 2
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:11:11 EST
Description of problem:
I have just installed this version and I choose a default installation
as a workstation. I want to add a printer but seems that my parallel
port is not enabled. I have read various articles and have tried out
everything. I have check my BIOS and is enabled as ECP. I have tried
putting also the "alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc" to
"/etc/modprobe.conf" and still does not work.

I have read my /var/log/messages and this is what I found

command find /lib -iname "*parport*" | tee printerdr
Not to do with the printman package.
can you try this with todays rawhide kernel please ? (2.6.9-1.643)
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
