The reason I have changed kernels is that 2.2.16
stopped printing. It coincided with some horror I
created for myself deleting some files relating to
my database of installed packages. In my
hysteria, I thought I have done something to the
printing. Since then I have upgraded much of my
system (debian, woody). Everything seems normal
and stable. But printing is pretty elusive now.
2.2.16 does not print. It has parport in the
kernel. I went to 2.2.17, with the same end
result. At this point I thought something less
stable would work and chose 2.4.0-test11-pre5.
And it did print. Here I used parport as modules.
But at some point it stopped printing. I have no
clue why. I sought to find better luck with
2.2.18pre21, but to no avail. This is my current
situation. The printer is fine --- I can print
from windows. I can write directly to to /dev/lp0
with no return of errors.
My question is how can this be traced?
