In Reply to: [gentoo-sparc] parallel port printer stop working on 2.6 kernel by "张韡武"
I finally solved this myself. The trick is, for some reason I am not
sure of, I have broken device node /dev/lp0 when doing upgrading. The
next time I start to print something, cups send the output to /dev/lp0,
creating a normal file there, so I didn't notice /dev/lp0 had been

The solution is to:
# rm /dev/lp0
# mknod /dev/lp0 c 6 0

Then the printer start to work.
