Description rickf 1999-09-17 12:47:52 UTC
lorax unable to locate printer installed on lp0.  6.0
detects presence of printer on /dev/lp0 properly, installs
and sets up correctly.  Lorax fails to recognize lp0 at
all (reports not detected), unable to print via even direct
output to device.

Add 'alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc' to your /etc/conf.modules -
does that help?
