I have some problems I hope somebody there can give me a hand. I am running
Red Hat 6.1 Kernel 2.2 12-20. The first problem is related to the printer.
First, for any reason, any time I tried to print directly to the port,
linux did not recognize it, so I added this line "alias parport_lowlevel"
in /etc/modules.conf. I got this message after typing dmesg:
parport0: pc-style at 0x378 [spp]
parport0: printer, Hewlet-packard deskjet 720c
lp0: using parport (polling)
But I did "cat .cshrc > /dev/lp0" and did not do anything. I connected
another printer and it printed after cat the port /dev/lp0. Now, I am
wondering if the problem is related with the printer drivers, if so, can
anyone tell me where can I found the linux drivers for HP deskjet 720 C.
The second problem is related with my Zip Drive. It is IOMega 100MB
connected the the parallel port. I have the printer also connected to this
port. So I woul like to be able to unplug the printer when I do not need it
and plug the zip. I really do not have what I have to do to make my zip
works. can somebody help me? Thanks
