I should know how to do this, but I never had the need to from Linux until now. I ran printconf and added a printer with my appropriate printer driver, but nothing happens when I run a test page.
So I'm assuming my parellel port isn't setup somehow, which I don't know the first clue about doing. I checked my modules.conf and there is a line in there that says
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
So just for kicks I typed 'modprobe parport_pc" and it was unable to find this module. So obviously I have compile issue I need to deal with.
My question basically is, what is the best way to test this? I still haven't found an answer regarding hardware aliasing-to-modules, and how to find out the names I need to put in the modules.conf (like parport_lowlevel, how the heck would I've have known that, or char-level-14 or whatever). Finding the appropriate module is easy enough, but the place to point it is what I don't get. I though maybe the /dev directory would tell me, but nothing seems to corresponde there to the other things in my modules.conf (like eth0, or my MWAV modem which I have yet to find out what to point hte module too).
Any comments about these issues might help shed some light on this for me.
