Nothing other than this from the lpd-errs file produced when 'checkpc -fV' is run. lpd-errs: Aug 9 13:06:09 scorpio checkpc: lp: Checkwrite: fcntl F_SETFL of '/dev/null' failed - Inappropriate ioctl for device Aug 9 17:18:57 scorpio checkpc: lp: Checkwrite: fcntl F_SETFL of '/dev/null' failed - Inappropriate ioctl for device I can connect using smbclient without any problems. The problem is not there. The is just not connection with the print server, and that is what I cannot understand. I had the same problem with an install of 5.4. One day that message started being printed in the log and I could no longer print. I was forced to do a total reinstall of the OS. I really believe that the '/dev/null' thing is the key to this, but I do not have a clue how to go about fixing it. I have a bad feeling that I am going to have to do a total reinstall of the OS. With KDE, OpenOffice etc., that will take awhile. Unless you have a better idea Matthew, I will probably go that route this weekend. I do not need another over sized paper weight. -- Gerard Seibert [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
