Howto configure the Linux kernel / drivers / block / paride


PARIDE configuration
PARIDE doesn't need PARPORT, but if PARPORT is configured as a module,
PARIDE must also be a module. The bogus CONFIG_PARIDE_PARPORT option
controls the choices given to the user ...


  • Option: PARIDE_PARPORT
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module)
    • depends on PARIDE!=n
    • default m if PARPORT=m
    • default y if PARPORT!=m

"Parallel IDE high-level drivers"

    • depends on PARIDE


  • Option: PARIDE_PD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Parallel port IDE disks
    • depends on PARIDE
      This option enables the high-level driver for IDE-type disk devices connected through a parallel port. If you chose to build PARIDE support into your kernel, you may answer Y here to build in the parallel port IDE driver, otherwise you should answer M to build it as a loadable module. The module will be called pd. You must also have at least one parallel port protocol driver in your system. Among the devices supported by this driver are the SyQuest EZ-135, EZ-230 and SparQ drives, the Avatar Shark and the backpack hard drives from MicroSolutions.


  • Option: PARIDE_PCD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Parallel port ATAPI CD-ROMs
    • depends on PARIDE
      This option enables the high-level driver for ATAPI CD-ROM devices connected through a parallel port. If you chose to build PARIDE support into your kernel, you may answer Y here to build in the parallel port ATAPI CD-ROM driver, otherwise you should answer M to build it as a loadable module. The module will be called pcd. You must also have at least one parallel port protocol driver in your system. Among the devices supported by this driver are the MicroSolutions backpack CD-ROM drives and the Freecom Power CD. If you have such a CD-ROM drive, you should also say Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support" below, because that's the file system used on CD-ROMs.


  • Option: PARIDE_PF
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Parallel port ATAPI disks
    • depends on PARIDE
      This option enables the high-level driver for ATAPI disk devices connected through a parallel port. If you chose to build PARIDE support into your kernel, you may answer Y here to build in the parallel port ATAPI disk driver, otherwise you should answer M to build it as a loadable module. The module will be called pf. You must also have at least one parallel port protocol driver in your system. Among the devices supported by this driver are the MicroSolutions backpack PD/CD drive and the Imation Superdisk LS-120 drive.


  • Option: PARIDE_PT
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Parallel port ATAPI tapes
    • depends on PARIDE
      This option enables the high-level driver for ATAPI tape devices connected through a parallel port. If you chose to build PARIDE support into your kernel, you may answer Y here to build in the parallel port ATAPI disk driver, otherwise you should answer M to build it as a loadable module. The module will be called pt. You must also have at least one parallel port protocol driver in your system. Among the devices supported by this driver is the parallel port version of the HP 5GB drive.


  • Option: PARIDE_PG
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Parallel port generic ATAPI devices
    • depends on PARIDE
      This option enables a special high-level driver for generic ATAPI devices connected through a parallel port. The driver allows user programs, such as cdrtools, to send ATAPI commands directly to a device.
      If you chose to build PARIDE support into your kernel, you may answer Y here to build in the parallel port generic ATAPI driver, otherwise you should answer M to build it as a loadable module. The module will be called pg.
      You must also have at least one parallel port protocol driver in your system.
      This driver implements an API loosely related to the generic SCSI driver. See <file:include/linux/pg.h>. for details.
      You can obtain the most recent version of cdrtools from <ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/>. Versions 1.6.1a3 and later fully support this driver.
