CONFIG_PARPORT: Parallel port support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_PARPORT has multiple definitions:

Parallel port support (EXPERIMENTAL) found in arch/m68k/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_PARPORT:

Help text

If you want to use devices connected to your machine's parallel port (the connector at the computer with 25 holes), e.g. printer, ZIP drive, PLIP link (Parallel Line Internet Protocol is mainly used to create a mini network by connecting the parallel ports of two local machines) etc., then you need to say Y here; please read Documentation/parport.txt and drivers/parport/BUGS-parport.

For extensive information about drivers for many devices attaching to the parallel port see http://www.torque.net/linux-pp.html on the WWW.

It is possible to share a single parallel port among several devices and it is safe to compile all the corresponding drivers into the kernel. To compile parallel port support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called parport. If you have more than one parallel port and want to specify which port and IRQ to be used by this driver at module load time, take a look at Documentation/parport.txt.

If unsure, say Y.
