Description dirvine 1999-10-07 16:47:35 EDT
Installer/printtools cannot find any attached printers to
/dev/lp* in RedHat 6.1, where as in 6.0 they could. Any
ideas? I reinstalled both 6.0 and 6.1 from scratch (haven't
tried updating 6.0 to 6.1) and the problem is reproducable.
Machine is a Dell XPST P 3 500 mhz, printer is a HP 2100 m
postscript printer attached to the parallel port. In RH 6.0,
the generic postscript 1200dpi settings from the installer
script worked....

'alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc' to your /etc/conf.modules.

This is really a no-brainer.  When installing 6.1 from
scratch, conf.modules is missing the alias for
parport_lowlevel to parport_pc.  lpd expects to find

If you grab the modutils from Raw Hide, it should process this
alias automatically for you.
