Description andy 1999-12-30 17:43:46 UTC
Please note I have the module. [root@neuromancer andy]# head -1 /etc/conf.modules alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc [root@neuromancer log]# /sbin/lsmod | grep ^par parport_pc 5620 1 (autoclean) parport 7124 1 (autoclean) [parport_pc lp] As of 30th Dec 1999 I have latest (rawhide) printtool/rhs-printfilters. I can get printtool to detect my Canon 610 (sometimes). But I have never managed to get any output. [root@neuromancer log]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/lpd restart Shutting down lpd: [ OK ] Starting lpd: [ OK ] [root@neuromancer andy]# lpr foo.c lpr: connect: Connection refused jobs queued, but cannot start daemon. Even with the module I can not detect the printer a second time for another queue. Completely broken and nothing logged anywhere. AMP
Comment 1 andy 2000-01-02 12:05:59 UTC
After including the extra line in conf.modules the line modprobe: can't locate module char-major-108 is reported all over the place, particually ppp. lpd (sometimes) also reports parport0: detected irq 7; use procfs to enable interrupt-driven operation. & parport0: no IEEE-1284 device present. procinfo has nothing under irq7 - it's not even listed. Q. which module is char-major-108, how can I find out what make options are required? Q. how do i get proc to see irq7/parrallel port? AMP
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-01-18 10:19:59 UTC
Does lpr 0.48 fix this? Also, since it's complaining about a missing char-major-108, I'd assume you're using a custom kernel. Which version? char-major-108 is /dev/ppp, does adding alias char-major-108 ppp to /etc/conf.modules get rid of this? Is your printer port in the BIOS set to EPP, ECP, Bidirectional or SPP?
Comment 3 andy 2000-01-20 18:55:59 UTC
I've tried all bios settings & lpr 0.48 preset - no doesn't fix problem lpd reports kernel: parport0:detected irq 7 use procfs to enable interrupt-driven operation. kernel: parport0: no IEEE-1284 device present. kernel: lp0: using parport0 (polling). kernel is version 2.2.12 printtool still can't detect printer irq 7 is correct which parrallel port bios setting do you recommend?
Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-02-05 02:17:59 UTC
The ppp warning is normal for a 2.2 kernel when pppd tries to determine if the kernel supports /dev/ppp-style devices, something that isn't present in 2.2.x. What are the contents of your /etc/printcap file?
