where do I get the lp module? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi there, As far as I read in several printing howtos etc. the only thing I am missing is the module lp (parport, parport_pc exist). I'd like to build it with a new kernel, but I can not find an option like CONFIG_LP in my make menuconfig. I don't even find an option similar to this in the ..config. Looks like it has hidden somewhere. What am I doing wrong? Here is my output from > cat /proc/devices Character devices: 1 mem 2 pty 3 ttyp 4 ttyS 5 cua 7 vcs 10 misc 13 input 14 sound 116 alsa ...

    Hi there,

    As far as I read in several printing howtos etc. the only thing I am
    missing is the module lp (parport, parport_pc exist). I'd like to build
    it with a new kernel, but I can not find an option like CONFIG_LP in my
    make menuconfig. I don't even find an option similar to this in the
    ..config. Looks like it has hidden somewhere. What am I doing wrong?

    Here is my output from
    > cat /proc/devices
    Character devices:
    1 mem
    2 pty
    3 ttyp
    4 ttyS
    5 cua
    7 vcs
    10 misc
    13 input
    14 sound
    116 alsa
    128 ptm
    136 pts
    162 raw
    226 drm

    Block devices:
    3 ide0
    22 ide1


    This is the output from
    > ls /lib/modules/2.4.21/kernel/drivers/char/
    agp drm serial.o


    if this is from interest: Kernel version 2.4.21 (original sources),
    running on a Debian unstable system.

    I am confused.

    Well, in there I have "Parallel Port Support" (CONFIG_PARPORT) which
    makes the module parport.
    Then, there is "PC Style Hardware" (CONFIG_PARPORT_PC), which makes the
    module parport_pc both of which I need.
    I don't check "Multi-IO-chards" (CONFIG_PARPORT_SERIAL), since I don't
    need a serial parallel port (what is it anyway?)
    And of course, I "support foreign hardware" (CONFIG_PARPORT_OTHER) and
    "IEEE 1284 transfer modes" (CONFIG_PARPORT_1284).

    Now, here comes my problem: where is CONFIG_LP or something that creates
    the module called lp.o?
