hi all,

grabbed 2.4.12, copied .config from my current 2.4.10, did a make oldconfig
and make dep && make bzImage. here's the error:

  ieee1284_ops.c: In function `ecp_forward_to_reverse':
  ieee1284_ops.c:365: `IEEE1284_PH_DIR_UNKNOWN' undeclared (first use in this
  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
  make[3]: *** [ieee1284_ops.o] Error 1
  make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.12/drivers/parport'
  make[2]: *** [first_rule] Error 2
  make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.12/drivers/parport'
  make[1]: *** [_subdir_parport] Error 2
  make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.12/drivers'
  make: *** [_dir_drivers] Error 2

i don't need 2.4.12 for anything in particular, so please don't feel like i
need help or anything. i'm perfectly happy with 2.4.10.

my only concern is for the kernel itself. someone out there may really
depend on the new release.

if you want to ask any questions or a copy of .config, please email me at

thank you! :)
