    I have run into trouble in attempting to implement the kernel
    APM ATX auto-shutdown feature.

    I had to remove APM from the kernel because during the auto
    shutdown files were being deleted. Files like fstab, so I
    now have to press the power button to power off.

    However, I have lost lp. I can print using lpr, and I
    have /dev/lp0, but programs like WP8 which require lp
    can't print.

    Everything I have read says that lp should just be there,
    but I can't find it.

    I am guessing that it got taken out in the same way as
    ftstab did.

    How do I put it back?

    Debian testing. kernel 2.4.9
