Technical Details

The loadable kernel module must be manually inserted with the modprobe command:

modprobe vellemaninstrumentation [parport=/dev/parportX]

where the optional /dev/parport must match the paralllel port number (e.g., /dev/parport1) where your Velleman PCG10 is attached. The default value is /dev/parport0.
