Description of problem:
In trying to track down why my printer wasn't working. I noticed a
message in the log: "lp: driver loaded but no devices found"
I rebooted, got the same message, followed by an OOPS. The URL I
entered is to a discussion of the problem started by someone else with
a different kernel, but the exact same symptoms.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with above listed kernel

Kernel oops from log
As per the comment in the URL, adding:
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
options parport_pc io=0x378,0x278 irq=7,auto
to /etc/modprobe.conf fixed the printer.
This is a dupe of bug #145151. The dmesg output is essentially the
same as for that bug.
