The card reader problem is solved. Just type as root:
Code:
setpci -s 06:09.3 4c.b=0x02

Where should i put this so that its applied in every boot.
But what should i do about the printer?

Hey i found out the problem with printing. When i turn on the printer its detected by cups but when system uploads the firmware cups fails to detect it, as if the device is lost. Its a bug refer to the link:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-source-2.6.22/+bug/35638

I verified using the command:
Code:
watch -d --interval 0.5 lpinfo -v

Glad you found it out.  I knew I was probably off by a long shot.  You'll have to do this with each kernel upgrade more than likely, but open Tasma --> Boot Manager.  Open the edit screen for the entry you're booting in.  At the end of the kernel parameters and put a space between the last word of the line and the setpci code.  Hope that helps.

You posted two problems, so I think we're not quite on the same one.   Tongue

Edit the kernel parameters in your menu.lst file in your boot manager or through a text editor as root.  At the end of your kernel parameters, add the setpci -s 06:09.3 4c.b=0x02 .

On the printer one, that might take a bit.  I read through the bugs with CUPS.  I'm trying to think of what might have gone wrong.

I think its a problem with cups backend, upgrading cups to the latest version 1.3.2 might solve it.

p.s
I really don't want to give up on this distro.

The problem hasn't solved yet. It wouldn't solve until there is a kernel 2.6.20 series available and/or the latest cups.

Mailman any idea when will release with kernel 2.6.20 series will be available.

And sorry to disappoint you but i have installed zenwalk linux for the time being.

I installed zenwalk because i needed to print a report and i had a very urgent need for the printer to work, so i couldn't wait for the solution for this problem to be found. Sad

I want to make a request to the maintainer of cups package to please update it so that i can come back to pardus. Smiley

Here is a link to the Pardus Bugzilla.

Pardus Bugzilla

Some time ago, I compiled a kernel on my dv8000 for 2.6.21 with Pardus to get my card reader to work.  Sorry we couldn't help you out in time.  Stay tuned!
