lpd does not work
Posted on 1997-05-03
I recently installed Linux Slackware 3.2 and aps filter 4.1.9 magic filter for my Hp Deskjet 660Cse printer. At startup, I get several error messages as follows:
When lpd daemon starts, it prints the date followed by
"Get_local_hostname: hostname 'Micron' bad".
And whenever I run lpd, lpr, lpq, lpc, or lprm, I get the same messge.
When I type hostname, it returns 'Micron', which is the contents of /etc/HOSTNAME. I inserted "localhost" and "Micron" into /etc/hosts.equiv and installed LPRng version 3.2.3, but I still have the same problem.
I really appreciate if you let me know how I can use my printer and remove those error messages.
