    I'm running RedHat 7.0 on a ThinkPad, installed
    ghostscript 6.50, and trying to get a Lexmark Z32 to
    work with it.

    Let me preface this by saying I have been using
    linux/other forms of unix for years, but this is my
    first crack at administering my own machine, so I'm
    more than a little bit clueless... I beg for your

    I found the driver at lexmark's web site and
    downloaded it; saw it was parallel-port only and dug
    out a cable from the abyss to use (the win98 half of
    the machine was happy with usb).

    So I try

    rpm -U --force lexmarkz32-1.0-1.i386.rpm

    and a window pops up asking me to verify the print
    cartridge settings... so far so good.

    Click ok, get another window telling me I've
    successfully installed the software, "continue" to
    print a test page.

    Only no test page prints, and I get the following

    Status Information:
     sending job 'root@localhost+775' to
     connecting to 'localhost', attempt 1
     connected to 'localhost'
     requesting printer z32-outfiles@localhost
     job 'root@localhost+775' transfer to
    z32-outfiles@localhost failed
    ack 'ACK_FAIL'
      sending str '^Bz32-outfiles' to
     error msg: 'spool queue for 'z32-outfiles' does not
    exist on server localhost.localdomain'
     error msg: ' non-existent printer or you need to
    run 'checkpc -f''

    Am I doing something really obvious wrong?

    Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help!
