Printing and lpd demon hogging cpu


Hi

I have got a machine running Ubuntu 6.06. I recently wanted to get a pdf document from this computer so I went through a procedure of adding a new printer and enabling it as a pdf and also enabling lpd printer. This did not work so I gave up, finding another way to print my document. After this the machine started to go really slowly, on looking at this machine I found the lpd demon (lpd Server demon) was eating up most of the cpu. If I killed it the machine recovered, I tried to remove the lpd package using synaptic but if I restart the machine this demon restarts and hogs the cpu. How do I stop this process other than killing it ? Is there any way round this bug without stopping the demon.

Can anyone help?

Adrian

Can anyone please help, this problem is really slowing up my machine, and every time the computer is restarted it comes back. I also can not understand why there are 2 lpd demons!
