Cute, can you attach /proc/sys/dev/parport/parport*/autoprobe?

Comment 2 Nathan Bryant 2003-01-01 01:42:14 UTC
Created attachment 89020 [details]

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-20 03:36:04 UTC
Does this persist with rawhide kudzu? I can't reproduce this here.

Comment 4 Nathan Bryant 2003-02-22 22:54:14 UTC
looks like it works ok with kudzu-0.99.97-1
