Can someone please help me to solve the MEPIS 2.6.7 kernel refusing to recognise my parallel port [I'm using a Laserjet 6p printer] It works if I switch to the 2.4.26 kernel but refuses to do so in the 2.6.7. It is possible to get it working by executing the following:
#rmmod lp
#rmmod parport
#modprobe parport_pc io=0x378 irq=none
#modprobe lp

But the system will not do this automatically. Have done extensive search of net and forums and am at wits end. Really don't want to blow it all away and start again.
Many thanks Bob
