   9        tristate "Parallel port support"
  10        depends on HAS_IOMEM
  11        ---help---
  12          If you want to use devices connected to your machine's parallel port
  13          (the connector at the computer with 25 holes), e.g. printer, ZIP
  14          drive, PLIP link (Parallel Line Internet Protocol is mainly used to
  15          create a mini network by connecting the parallel ports of two local
  16          machines) etc., then you need to say Y here; please read
  17          <file:Documentation/parport.txt> and
  18          <file:drivers/parport/BUGS-parport>.
  20          For extensive information about drivers for many devices attaching
  21          to the parallel port see <> on
  22          the WWW.
  24          It is possible to share a single parallel port among several devices
  25          and it is safe to compile all the corresponding drivers into the
  26          kernel. To compile parallel port support as a module, choose M here:
  27          the module will be called parport.
  28          If you have more than one parallel port and want to specify which
  29          port and IRQ to be used by this driver at module load time, take a
  30          look at <file:Documentation/parport.txt>.
  32          If unsure, say Y.
  34if PARPORT
  36config PARPORT_PC
  37        tristate "PC-style hardware"
  38        depends on (!SPARC64 || PCI) && !SPARC32 && !M32R && !FRV && \
  39                (!M68K || ISA) && !MN10300 && !AVR32 && !BLACKFIN
  40        ---help---
  41          You should say Y here if you have a PC-style parallel port. All
  42          IBM PC compatible computers and some Alphas have PC-style
  43          parallel ports.  PA-RISC owners should only say Y here if they
  44          have a SuperIO parallel port.
  46          To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
  47          module will be called parport_pc.
  49          If unsure, say Y.
  52        tristate "Multi-IO cards (parallel and serial)"
  53        depends on SERIAL_8250_PCI && PARPORT_PC && PCI
  54        help
  55          This adds support for multi-IO PCI cards that have parallel and
  56          serial ports.  You should say Y or M here.  If you say M, the module
  57          will be called parport_serial.
  59config PARPORT_PC_FIFO
  60        bool "Use FIFO/DMA if available (EXPERIMENTAL)"
  61        depends on PARPORT_PC && EXPERIMENTAL
  62        help
  63          Many parallel port chipsets provide hardware that can speed up
  64          printing. Say Y here if you want to take advantage of that.
  66          As well as actually having a FIFO, or DMA capability, the kernel
  67          will need to know which IRQ the parallel port has.  By default,
  68          parallel port interrupts will not be used, and so neither will the
  69          FIFO.  See <file:Documentation/parport.txt> to find out how to
  70          specify which IRQ/DMA to use.
  73        bool "SuperIO chipset support (EXPERIMENTAL)"
  74        depends on PARPORT_PC && EXPERIMENTAL
  75        help
  76          Saying Y here enables some probes for Super-IO chipsets in order to
  77          find out things like base addresses, IRQ lines and DMA channels.  It
  78          is safe to say N.
  81        tristate "Support for PCMCIA management for PC-style ports"
  82        depends on PCMCIA && PARPORT_PC
  83        help
  84          Say Y here if you need PCMCIA support for your PC-style parallel
  85          ports. If unsure, say N.
  87config PARPORT_IP32
  88        tristate "SGI IP32 builtin port (EXPERIMENTAL)"
  89        depends on SGI_IP32 && EXPERIMENTAL
  90        select PARPORT_NOT_PC
  91        help
  92          Say Y here if you need support for the parallel port on
  93          SGI O2 machines. This code is also available as a module (say M),
  94          called parport_ip32.  If in doubt, saying N is the safe plan.
  96config PARPORT_AMIGA
  97        tristate "Amiga builtin port"
  98        depends on AMIGA
  99        select PARPORT_NOT_PC
 100        help
 101          Say Y here if you need support for the parallel port hardware on
 102          Amiga machines. This code is also available as a module (say M),
 103          called parport_amiga. If in doubt, saying N is the safe plan.
 105config PARPORT_MFC3
 106        tristate "Multiface III parallel port"
 107        depends on ZORRO
 108        select PARPORT_NOT_PC
 109        help
 110          Say Y here if you need parallel port support for the MFC3 card.
 111          This code is also available as a module (say M), called
 112          parport_mfc3. If in doubt, saying N is the safe plan.
 114config PARPORT_ATARI
 115        tristate "Atari hardware"
 116        depends on ATARI
 117        select PARPORT_NOT_PC
 118        help
 119          Say Y here if you need support for the parallel port hardware on
 120          Atari machines. This code is also available as a module (say M),
 121          called parport_atari. If in doubt, saying N is the safe plan.
 123config PARPORT_GSC
 124        tristate
 125        default GSC
 126        select PARPORT_NOT_PC
 129        tristate "Sparc hardware (EXPERIMENTAL)"
 130        depends on SBUS && EXPERIMENTAL
 131        select PARPORT_NOT_PC
 132        help
 133          This driver provides support for the bidirectional parallel port
 134          found on many Sun machines. Note that many of the newer Ultras
 135          actually have pc style hardware instead.
 137config PARPORT_AX88796
 138        tristate "AX88796 Parallel Port"
 139        select PARPORT_NOT_PC
 140        help
 141          Say Y here if you need support for the parallel port hardware on
 142          the AX88796 network controller chip. This code is also available
 143          as a module (say M), called parport_ax88796.
 145          The driver is not dependent on the AX88796 network driver, and
 146          should not interfere with the networking functions of the chip.
 148config PARPORT_1284
 149        bool "IEEE 1284 transfer modes"
 150        help
 151          If you have a printer that supports status readback or device ID, or
 152          want to use a device that uses enhanced parallel port transfer modes
 153          such as EPP and ECP, say Y here to enable advanced IEEE 1284
 154          transfer modes. Also say Y if you want device ID information to
 155          appear in /proc/sys/dev/parport/*/autoprobe*. It is safe to say N.
