I tried to check if my printer was working by
echo -eu "hello\f\r" > /dev/lp0, but nothing happened.
(The cable connection is no problem)
The following is the relevant part of the config file
when I built the kernel:
The following are messges when system boots:
parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778) [PCSPP(,...)]
parport_pc: Via 686A parallel port: io=0x378
lp0: using parport0 (polling).
lp0: console ready
Do I have to build parallel port support right into kernel?
Is that where the problem lies?
