Description braunm 1999-10-11 02:45:41 EDT
After installing RH6.1 the printer ports are
not detected when running printtool.
The error-message in /var/log/message is
cannot locate module parport_lowlevel
this can be fixed by putting the line
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
after this change the printer port is detected!
