I don't think there's particularly a right version to use, the backend
hasn't been touched in years. Although, the parport_pc has been
slightly broken for quite a while:
That might explain what you're seeing? Is the I/O port displayed the
same when you don't have ppdev loaded? If not, er.. try messing with
the bios settings so the port matches what parport_pc assumes? Sorry
it's not a great solution.. and sorry for the slow reply.
