If this is off topic, please accept my apology. I would appreciate direction to a more appropriate resource if there is one.
I am trying to set up an HP Laserjet 6L on a SuSE 6.3 box. If I attempt the following command, I get this result:
david:~ # cat /proc/parport/0/irq > /dev/lp0
bash: /dev/lp0: Device or resource busy
I know that the printer works and I thought that I should be able to send output to that address and have it print.
Also, are there any problems you can see from the information below?
david:~ # cat /proc/parport/0/hardware
david:~ # lsmod

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. I have read the printing howto until I am blue in the face and can't seem to make any headway with this...
