Description hellyj 2000-05-04 20:31:35 EDT
- HP Laserjet 6MP as /dev/lp0 and filter HP Laserjet.
- /usr/sbin/lpc shows no daemon present but all else operational
- /usr/sbin/lpd will cause enqueued jobs to print normally
- re-check with /usr/sbin/lpc shows no daemon present

- tried deleting /etc/printcap and redefining after re-boot with same

- also in /var/log/messages is the following after restarting lpd:

May  4 16:42:26 hellyj-3 PAM_pwdb[932]: (su) session closed for user root
May  4 17:17:19 hellyj-3 lpd[1130]: restarted
May  4 17:17:19 hellyj-3 lpd[1130]: printer/tcp: unknown service
May  4 17:19:01 hellyj-3 lpd[1135]: restarted
May  4 17:19:01 hellyj-3 lpd[1135]: printer/tcp: unknown service

suggesting that printer/tcp service is being sought, not found, and causing
the daemon to stop.

Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-05-05 10:01:59 EDT
printer should be defined as port 515 in /etc/services...

Make sure your /etc/services file contains the line

printer	515/tcp	spooler
