drivers


I currently have Mandrake Linux 8.0 installed. I have a Lexmark Z42 printer, and couldn't find any drivers for it. Anybody know where I might be able to find some? Also, I have a modem with a Conexant chipset. Their website says the Linux drivers will be out by the end of this year. Anybody know anything about progress on this?

As far as the modem is concerned I think you will just have to wait for them to put a driver, as it is probably an internal winmodem? In which case you may want to test out the driver for them.

Try a program called Turboprint for the printer, although not sure if you will actually be able to use it fully.

Go into the Mandrake control panel and start up the printer wizzard as root, there should be a CUPS driver for your printer.
