Hello Jens,

Can you ever get anything to print, or is it just sometimes that it fails?
Also, have you ever managed to get this particular printer model to work
with Linux?

Something useful to try is to make sure that you're not overriding the
default I/O, IRQ and DMA settings with wrong values:

# # start with no modules loaded
# insmod parport
# insmod parport_pc
# insmod lp
# # now try printing something
