I used Printtool to install my printer
I applied the command
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
in the /etc/conf.modules
So lp0 is detected. But I still get the error:
/var/log.messages: "modprobe: can't
locate module parport_lowlevel"
and I can't print.
What do the files in /proc/parport/0 say?
By any chance, did you recompile your kernel and leave out parport support?
Can't reproduce this anywhere.
