Description tim 1999-09-26 20:34:35 UTC
Owing to the use of' elsif' in the auto-port-detection bit in printtool, only one port will ever be detected. The' elsif's need to change to' if's.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-29 20:27:59 UTC
and actually, they should be cascaded, because with the
2.2 kernel, you'll never find a lp1 without an lp0...

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-05 14:36:59 UTC
Fixed in printtool-3.42-1, which will be in the next Raw Hide release.
