I've "solved" my /dev/lpt0 problem. Here is what happened: 1. I observed that the problem is also happening on FreeBSD 6.0. 2. It isn't happening on 5.3. 3. I sprinkled some printf's into lptopen in sys/dev/ppbus/lpt.c. 4. I compiled a new kernel, stripping a whole bunch of stuff out of the generic kernel. The problem went away. 5. I went back to the original lpt.c. Still working. 6. I compiled another kernel, adding "device plip" back in. The problem came back.
So the problem, whatever it is, seems to involve an interaction between printing and plip. Since I have printing working again, debugging the problem is no longer a high priority for me. But if anyone has some suggestions for debugging, I would be happy to try them this weekend. Am I the only dinosaur still using a parallel port printer? It seems incredible to me that no one else using 6.0/6.1 could have encountered this problem. Even though I have "fixed" the problem, it should probably be debugged properly, unless there's sentiment for removing "device plip" from the generic kernel. -- George Mitchell _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
