  Just FYI, this option corresponds to "Parallel port support",
"Support for PCMCIA management for PC-style ports".

  currently, since i've already done a "make mrproper" and a build,
that config option shows up *twice* in that menu, the first one
greyed out.  definitely not a good sign.

the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project ( maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
