Description estes 1999-12-29 21:38:15 UTC
On two separate systems (one 6.0 and one 6.1) the only time I can get lpd
to print anything, is if the job is in the queue and I restart lpd.  If
two jobs are in the queue, they both print.  However, the next print
request is rejected:

lpr: connect: Connection refused
jobs queued, but cannot start daemon.

I upgraded to the rawhide packages:

and have:
  alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc

in /etc/conf.modules.

After the print job is rejected, there are still 2 lpd processes running.
The listing from lsmod doesn't seem to have changed either:

That's about all I can think of to check.
