1. parallel printers on PDP-11/70, Ultrix-11
DEC PDP-11/70 running Ultrix-11 Version 3.0.
Parallel printer attached.
lpr just spools jobs, they are never printed.
The daemon never kicks up, no lock files are set, etc.
I'm familiar with 4.2BSD running on a Vax, but have never
worked with Ultrix from an administrative perspective.
The error left by lpd is a open file error. Apparently
it can't open /dev/lp. All of the permissions are fine.
I think the problem may be one of using the wrong major/minor
device number on /dev/lp. How am I supposed to know which
major/minor number to use? When the machine was sysgen'ed
the following numbers were used in /usr/sys/conf/unix.cf:
lp 177514 200
These are "default" numbers. I have no idea where they came
from, or why I should think they are right.
Also, maybe worth noting, lpd never shows up in the process
table. I'm sure this is because it fails to open lp, just
thought I'd point out that I do know about lpd, but it's not
happy. And, printcap looks right...knows who it's supposed
to be talking to. (lprm and lpq work properly as well.)
Any help in figuring out what's wrong here would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
