No hotplug message from the kernel appears and no /sys "dev" file is offered.

Comment 1 Jason 2005-11-28 12:29:16 UTC
Is anyone working on allowing the kernel to create sys entries for parport and lp?

Thanks,

From the Gentoo Bugtracker, Greg mentioned to take care of it. But two years
after... still it isn't working.

Ignore my foolish comment. ppdev does add the device.
