	It seems the ppdev character device isn't working, or the backend is 
configured to use direct hardware access, which isn't compiled in.
	Check that th ppdev kernel module is loaded and that your user account has 
rights to access the /dev/parport0 device. Then edit umax_pp.conf (in the 
same directory than dll.conf) and change the line:

port some-value


port /dev/parport0

	Things should get better.
