I have a devboard E2 with the ETRAX 100LX. I would like to know if it is possible to connect a parallel hard drive on LP0.
I try to configure the kernel with the parallel support, paride, epat (the chip in the external HD case) and pd but it doesn’t working.
On a “standard” pc, all work fine with this drivers. But on the devboard, when I try to load paride, no problem; when I try epat, all is ok; but when I try PD, I see this message:
pd: pd version 1.05, major 45, cluster 64, nice 0
pda: Autoprobe failed
pd: no valid drive found
insmod: init_module: pd: Operation not permitted”
The parallel port seem to be work: when I connect a printer on the X23 port, and I type: echo “SALUT” >> /dev/lp0 , the printer do correctly this work.
I will be very happy if you can help me to resolve this problem.
