Hello, again.

I'm having a problem running lpd. I just installed FreeBSD 4.9 on a new Pentium I, and 
set up printing. Following the instructions in Section 11.3 of the Handbook, I added 
the following line to /etc/rc.conf:

However, this does not turn on lpd, even when I reboot. Furthermore, when I su to 
root, and issue the "lpd" command, it prints whatever I have in print queue, but when 
everything is printed, and I try issuing another lpr command, I get the following 
error message:

lpr: Unable to connect /var/run/printer: Socket operation on non-socket
lpr: Check to see if the master process 'lp' is running.

I accordingly do a ps|grep lpd, and sure enough, it's not running.

To make things worse, when I try deleting the print jobs via lprm, I can't, not even 
when I log on as root and issue "lprm -".

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong here?
