Re: [linuxham] Parallel Port PTT
There was a problem with the way fldigi init'ed the parallel port using
the linux ppdev driver. I meant to submit the fix for inclusion, but it
fell through the cracks. Just one file to change.
I would be happy to send you the fix and then I will get around to
submitting it to the maintainers.
