Re: [vox-tech] Printing under KDE

I seem to recall at the installfest that his this latest NIC problem had something to do with IRQ assignments. KNOPPIX magically appeared to solve this, hence the KNOPPIX install.

At this point, I think Dick would be served best by a new Linux install with a standard distro. I recall that he has tried various versions of Debian. I would be willing to help him install Gentoo at his house. Dick: let me know if you would be up for this. I could do it Saturday for sure. It might still be good to put in a LERT request for the record.

No, localhost:631 is not there. I know it has been there and working because we used cups to print a document the other night. How do I install it? Probably trashed something trying to get the network to run.

It may be on a different port. Try running 'netstat -lpt' as root and you
will get a listing of all TCP ports that are accepting connections and which
program is listening on each.

What is the relationship between CUPS and printcap file which I do not seem to have. Don't I need that?

CUPS does not use /etc/printcap at all. (That file is part of lpr, lprng,
and other traditional printing systems, which CUPS is not.) However, some
applications expect /etc/printcap to be there and use information from it.

BTW: Response, Not my idea, the installfest guys were trying to solve a network problem which remains. Are you any good at debugging why two nic cards do not seem to work together on a machine?

Are they the same chipset or different chipsets? Are they common cards or
very new/exotic? In that case getting a driver directly from the
manufacturer or from the driver developers may be necessary. What does dmesg

P.S. If you still want help from LERT please don't hesitate to mail
