The card can be identified under Linux in the following way:
01:00.0 Parallel controller: Oxford Semiconductor Ltd Device c110 (prog-if 02) Subsystem: Oxford Semiconductor Ltd Device c110 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16 I/O ports at ec00 [size=8] I/O ports at e880 [size=4] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel driver in use: parport_pc Kernel modules: parport_pc
The kernel automatically loads the kernel modul parport_pc if the card is found. Until now there is no information if the parallel port of this card can be accessed under Linux. Therefore, please post your Linux experiences with this card in the comment section of this page.
