After cvsupping my ports tree to fix a couple of security problems I
decided to install cups for printing.
Yea I know it isnt the freebsd default -- thats for another day.
Anyway This new version of cups 1.2.2 is really cool, I like the
interface and the web admin portal has really undergone lots of work.
My problem is that when you add a printer via the web interface the
devices pull-down does not show a parallel port even if the system has
detected that there is a printer there. (ie dmesg shows the printer
so where is the parallel port?
I asked on the cups list, and got nowhere.
I googled for it, but didn't get anything helpful
here is what I know:
An older version of cups on THIS same machine DID find the SAME printer.
there is a parallel option in the back-ends directory.
I cant find a log entry anywhere that suggests that a parallel port
printer is even being searched for and not found, so I can't be for
sure where exactly the problem lies.
anybody seen this behavior before? or have a clue?
