Loading USB printer failed


I have a USB printer (HP 1300) and use Linux Mandrake 10 with
kernel release 2.6.3.-4mdk.

During boot I find:

Loading USB printer FATAL: Module usblp already in kernel
FATAL: Error running install command for usblp
FATAL: Error running install command for printer

The problem seems the fact that there is some script that try
to install usblp module which is already in kernel.

It seems an error related to the interaction of the new kernel and the distro.

Can I have some help from the experts?

Is there a problem with that?
Do you get any symptons or problems with something? (eg. does your printer work?)

Hi rinonapo,
I posted the HP printer problem over one year ago (ages ... in computer field).
I haven't any more this problem but I changed distribution (KUbuntu and lastly SUSE 9.3).
I am not an expert like ToniT, so I can't ask you as a replay:

Before changing distribution, I solved the problem with a newbie method:
Quote:
Taking away paper from the drawer (after printer data sending),
causing of course a printer error for lack of paper, and then feeding again the printer
with paper
I am not proud of the discovered method... but it worked!
I am sorry I can't help you because I haven't tested Mandriva and the printers are strongly
dependent on the loading or not of the relevant drivers.
In one case I "added" (configured) the printer from the printer dialog windows.
Bye.

I know that taking away the paper solves the problem.... however my printer is not so near my desk so doing that would be a hassle...

I have discovered anyway that 2.6.13.4 kernel makes the printer work (together with the alcups0.9) and don't need to take the paper anymore :-) ...
However I get the
Code:
Loading USB printer FATAL: Module usblp already in kernel
FATAL: Error running install command for usblp
FATAL: Error running install command for printer
message during boot which is annoying.......

thank you
