This is a known issue. Look in the mailing list

--- original message --- Hi

Compiling IEEE1284 in the parport module produces the following errors:

ieee1284_ops.c: In function `ecp_forward_to_reverse': ieee1284_ops.c:365: `IEEE1284_PH_DIR_UNKNOWN' undeclared (first use in this function) ieee1284_ops.c:365: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once ieee1284_ops.c:365: for each function it appears in.) ieee1284_ops.c: In function `ecp_reverse_to_forward': ieee1284_ops.c:397: `IEEE1284_PH_DIR_UNKNOWN' undeclared (first use in this function) make[2]: *** [ieee1284_ops.o] Error 1

I search for IEEE1284_PH_DIR_UNKNOWN in all headers. It doesn't exist. In linux/parport.h i can find IEEE1284_PH_ECP_DIR_UNKNOWN which is what I think it should be.

Can someone confirm this??
