[Linux-parport] No associated port

I was searching through the mailing list archive and found this
following message from Kristian but I couldn’t find any reply.

What I am trying to do is to setup a soundmodem for amateur radio on the
parallel port, I have no serial port on this laptop, but a parallel port
is available. I am using kernel 2.6.10 from Fedora Core 2 Stock install
(not been bastardised yet :P) it's a plain fresh install and the
parallel port works fine under windows.

All the soundmodem driver does is to toglle one of the data lines to key
my radio's PTT.

Like with kristians post, I get the same lines in syslog. The laptop is
a compaq/HP presario 2500 with 512 meg ram and a 20 gig HD. As I say
running stock fedora core 2 with all the updates to 2.6.10. dual boot
with XP.. In the bios it's set as a standard plain parallel port  - not
Bi-dir or anything like epp etc.

Any help would be appreciated....

Fedora Core 3 with kernel 2.6.10-1.770_FC3smp

I have a problem since I updated to kernel 2.6.10

- All 2.6.9 kernels work fine with the same hardware.
- Same kernel 2.6.10 works with different hardware

Hardware that does not work:
Mainboard Asus P5GD2 with Intel Chips 915P and ICH6R on it (I'm not sure
which chip contains the parallel port)


modprobe parport works without error messages

/var/log/messages shows:

Apr  7 09:36:00 localhost kernel: pnp: Device 00:05 activated.
Apr  7 09:36:00 localhost kernel: parport: PnPBIOS parport detected.
Apr  7 09:36:00 localhost kernel: pnp: Device 00:05 disabled.

when trying to use the parallel port the following mesage is generated:

Apr  7 07:59:05 localhost kernel: ppdev: user-space parallel port driver
Apr  7 07:59:05 localhost kernel: ppdev0: no associated port!

any ideas or similar problems ?
