I installed RH6.1 and all works well except printing doesn't work.
I've reinstalled 3 times with no luck. Here's what I know:
Printer worked under WIN98 and previously RH6.0
Checked BIOS I have one parallel port, addr 378, IRQ 7.
When I use Print tool and try to add a printer it states /dev/lp0, 1
and 2 not detected.
After boot-up I did a dmesg and get,
lp: driver loaded but no devices found
Viewed the following:
/proc/devices found nothing pertaining to lp or parallel port
/proc/interrupts found nothing pertaining, IRQ 7 not even assigned
/proc/ioports found nothing pertaining, address space 378-37F not
/proc/modules and got the following,
parport_probe 2980 0 (autoclean) (unused)
lp 4476 0 (autoclean) (unused)
parport 7124 0 (autoclean) [parport_probe lp]
echo "testing" > /dev/lp0 and get,
bash: /dev/lp0: no such device
ls -l /dev/lp0 and get,
crw_rw_ _ _ _ 1 root daemon 6, 0 May 6 1998 /dev/lp0
New at Linux, so I'm not even sure what to look for. Would really like
some help, not sure what to do next.
