By the way, thank you for the very rapid replies.
I tried dmesg, and it did give some useful info:
0x378: FIFO is 16 bytes
0x378: writeIntrThreshold is 8
0x378: readIntrThreshold is 8
0x378: PWord is 8 bits
0x378: Interrupts are ISA-Pulses
0x378: ECP port cfgA=0x10 cfgB=0x4b
0x378: ECP settings irq=7 dma=3
parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778), irq 7 [PCSPP,TRISTATE,COMPAT,ECP]
parport0: cpp_mux: aa55f00f52ad51(00)
parport0: Found 1 daisy-chained devices
parport1: PC-style at 0x1078, irq 3 [PCSPP]
parport1: cpp_daisy: aa5500ff(18)
parport1: assign_addrs: aa5500ff(18)
parport1: Printer, Lexmark Lexmark 5700
This all looks correct. So it looks like it is detecting the card.
When I try to use lpr it does not print. (lpd does not give any
messages when it starts up.) When I do an lpq I get the following:
[root@kjblack init.d]# lpq -Plp1
Queue: no printable jobs in queue
Filter_status: waiting for lp to become ready (offline ?)
Moreover, when I try to do something like 'cat /etc/fstab > /dev/lp1'
the machine hangs up.
Now I really don't know what to look for! :-o
