Check for paper

Posted 12-02-2011 at 10:08 AM by FredGSanford

The other day while at home, I was doing some surfing and needed to print some info. I was using Salix OS, a Slackware based distro, but made easier to use. So I begin to print and noticed nothing was coming out of the printer. Mind you I have an older Brother AIO which works fine under RPM and DEB file format distros, but for Salix/Slackware, I had to use the tarball format. So it can get a little tricky.

Ok. I've used Debian for quite some time -- although I started with Slackware years back -- and it's been awhile since I attempted anything without a package manager!

I grabbed a copy of Slackware Disc 1 and installed a basic, console-only Slackware.

First snag...WiFi. I live in a busy neighbourhood full of students eager to grab "free" internet off a WEP-encrypted wireless router, so WPA is a must. Well, /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf didn't seem very happy to play...
