CONFIG_PPDEV: Support for user-space parallel port device drivers

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_PPDEV has multiple definitions:

Support for user-space parallel port device drivers found in arch/sh/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_PPDEV:

Help text

Saying Y to this adds support for /dev/parport device nodes. This is needed for programs that want portable access to the parallel port, for instance deviceid (which displays Plug-and-Play device IDs).

This is the parallel port equivalent of SCSI generic support (sg). It is safe to say N to this -- it is not needed for normal printing or parallel port CD-ROM/disk support.

To compile this support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ppdev.

If unsure, say N.
