I'm using Linuxcnc-2.7-Wheezy

I ran, lspci -v, and got this message after installing my parallel port card in an open pcie slot on my motherboard:

I've tried using the values: "0xe000" and "0xe008" in my stepconf, but haven't got my motors to turn, yet. Could also be the pin assignment, but I'm fairly certain I've got my motor pins assigned to my breakout board correctly.

after a couple weeks of rereadingTFM. I though I'd ask for some assistance, cuz, my credentials aren't there yet.

Thanks,

Leon

you shoudt do a
dmesg | grep parp*
in a terminal and post the output
it will tell you more of the card

seams he solfed the problem on its own
as he did post further config questions on steppers moving so parport is working
adress conflicts i guess

Here is the dmesg | grep parp*

I've also gotten a similar dmesg | grep parp* that doesn't include the Error message on the last line.

Here is where I am:
the 0xe000 address worked;
my "amplifer enable" pin assignment seemed was likely the problem - I have corrected this;
however I have intermittent success reproducing my results, with a new machine name field entry, when I test axes in the step conf wizard;

Sorry for the late reply, but I've been baffled and I didn't want to waste all of your time without being more critical of my set-up. Thank you all so much for your help.

Earlier on (before my initial post) I had originally bought a parallel port card that did have an incorrect chipset. However, I believe I remedied this when I installed a PCIe parallel port card with a SD-PEX10005 chipset.

can you try again without the grep, send it to a file and attach that file?

dmesg > dmesg.txt
