I've installed printers on an SGI 2100 before, IRIX 6.5.11. No problem,
except I don't remember how I did it (probably with lpadmin ?).
I got a new 2100 with 6.5.13 and decided to install the same printers.
I fired up [Toolchest][Printer manager], add new printer, online, give the
IP, HP printer, Color LaserJet, JetDirect admin... Options: woah, it even
recognizes the duplex unit. Heaven.
OK, let's do the same on the old machine. I fire up the Printer manager and
it tells me I have 2 BSD printers and I can't set any options. Let's delete
them. Now Add printer: what, no HP vendor option (only generic) ? no network
printer (only serial and parallel) ?
How come I don't have the same options ? Is it 6.5.11 vs 6.5.13 or something
