I'm using CUPS which seems to support the Phaser 6110 via the SpliX port so I assume I wouldn't need foo2qpdl. But rather worryingly pkg-descr lists the 6110 as "Untested". I don't have the necessary skills to hack the driver if things don't work so it looks like I'll probably have to eliminate this model from my list unless I can get any feedback from anybody who is successfully using one with FreeBSD. -- Mike Clarke _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
