I have an old linuxcnc system with a config file from 2015, the conversion fails. I am using the standard 2.9.2 with preempt rt iso. The parallel port is using driver parport_pc.Attached is the diagnostic file

Can you launch LinuxCNC from the command line
and post the result here?

I have found it is easier to roughly build a new config with stepconf or pncconf to get a working base without worrying about correct stepper parameters etc then cut and paste the correct ini and hal data in as required.

Core features have not changed but there are many things that have. If you follow this approach it should become fairly obvious what has. Just leave it alone. You will sort it in an hour or so.

If its a gantry machine a lot has changed from 2.8 and on with joint axes and homing

Try and remove this line from 'Routout_CNC.hal' (if unsure post the file):

loadrt probe_parport

I think this component has been dropped.

Put a # next to the suggested line. Linuxcnc now fires up with asking for a file conversion.

Get a message on screen saying no parport registered at 0x378 This is not always an error continuing.

The next line in Routout_CNC.hal is:

loadrt hal_parport cfg="0x378 out "
