New initscripts ought to load lp-related modules, but don't

Okay, that's good... But in modprobe.conf:

install parport_pc modprobe -i parport_pc ; modprobe lp ; true

So why aren't these modules loading? :?

lsmod lists parport - modprobe.conf refers to parport_pc. They are two distinct modules. There are also parport_cs and parport_serial.

If you want lp loaded alongside parport, just add a second line to modprobe.conf, and change the install module accordingly.

Oh... So that's to load lp if parport-pc gets loaded, not to load the modules on start.

No, I know about parport and parport-pc being different. You see, the problem is that /dev/lp0 only shows up when parport-pc is loaded. I think this is a problem with hwdetect, and for that matter *all* coldplugging utilities I've seen so far - they ought to load parport-pc on machines with parallel ports, but don't.

(For the record, parport-pc depends on parport.)

Well, you could do parport-pc in modprobe.conf, the same way lp is done above, so when parport is loaded, parport-pc and lp both get loaded as well.
