Subject: Printer problem
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
I was looking in the internet a solution for my "printer problem"
but I still did not find it.
I print nothing even I try directly to the printer port
cat /etc/hosts >/dev/lp0
The printer does nothing !!!
Parallel support an PC-Style are compiled as modules in my kernel
If I load the modules with the insmod command:
I get the follwing messages (with the dmesg command):
parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [SPP,EPP,ECPEPP]
parport0: Printer, Lexmark Z42
lp0: using parport0 (polling)
After this, if I try to print again ...... nothing new !! it does
not print anything !! but there are no error messages !!
May irq be the problem?
# cat /proc/parport/0/irq
I force in the /etc/modules.conf to use irq=7 and several io
addresses but nothing changed !!!
Please, if you don't mind help me !!!!!
Thank you very much and Best Regards.
