Description 8ds 1999-11-06 23:54:15 UTC
Hi, I've been trying to install over a PLIP connection but the module doesn't load properly when I select the device. I started plip on another system where RH-6.1 was already installed and it needs both the parport and parport_pc modules. The installation disk doesn't seem to be loading parport. The errors I get when trying to install are the same as if I try to load plip before the other modules. Thanks!

This issue has been assigned to a developer for further action.

I have experienced the same problem. It appeared that the module dependencies were incorrect. I mounted initrd.img on a loop device and changed the /modules/modules.dep file. But then parport_pc was unable to find the correct IO and IRQ. How can I pass the correct values to the parport_pc module (which is loaded by dependency means) ?
