Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

3) demesg :
usb-ohci.c: usb ohci at membase 0*c6098000, IRQ 11
usb.c : new Usb bus registered, assigned bus number 1
usb.c : USB new device connect, assigned device number 1
usb.c : USB new device connect, assigned device number 2
printer.c : usblp0 : USB Bidirectional printer dev 2 if 0 alt 0
4) cups :
-> the printer didn't react at all. and the device /dev/usb/lp0 is still unknown. (cups tells me : "unable to open usb port device file : no such periqheical device")
Could someone also tell me how to configure cups options ? Each time I start Kups, I can read "can't connec to cups server, check your options" . The only way to have it right I found is to run printerdrake once (then , I can print on a parallel-port-printer). My options are :
- cups host : localhost
-cups port : 631
- cups configuration file : /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
Where can I find an example of a configuration file ?
There are three different usb chipset drivers, exactly which one to use depends on the chipset on your motherboard. If you can post the motherboard make and model I should be able to tell if usb-ohci is the correct module or weather you should be using another one.
It's a dual-pentium PCI-ISA Bus Mainboard . The model is Ga-586DX, but it's without a usb port!
I've added a pci card to plug my printer on : I con read on it :
-> <CF> 04V0 94V-0 E119801
-> CE 1051P
-> Made in Taiwan FCC : H9MSER40XX VER:2.0
And on the chipset itself :
Bus 0, device 10, function 0:
USB Controller: OPTi Unknown device (rev 16).
Vendor id=1045. Device id=c861.
Medium devsel. Fast back-to-back capable. IRQ 11. Master Capable. Latency=32.
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe1004000 [0xe1004000].
