/dev/parport0 disappeared

Postby NiksaVel on Fri Apr 13, 2007 3:14 pm

hey guys...

you might recall a previous thread where I was desperately trying to setup a parallel port scanner and ended up doing it by changing the config of the sane backend to
port /dev/parport0

now... I went and try to use the scanner and it doesn't work... how inSANE... :evil:

I've also noticed that my /dev/parport0 doesn't exist anymore.... I suppose this is probably the reason, but why did this happen, and what do I do to fix it????



EDIT:
I actually realised that my parport0 is recreated by running the ppdiag diagnostic script... huh?? :shock: http://umax1220p.sourceforge.net/ppdiag
Windows is extremely fast after a fresh install. If you want to make it stay that way: - don't use it.

Why not include it in your startup scripts? :)

thought some1 who knows stuff might take a look at it and shorten it down to the necessary stuff (loose the diagnostic) and than I can include it...
