Re: usb printing problem
Hope I understood the question right - I'l try to explain how I got
USB working for printing. Don't know if there are differences in SID.
I've Woody on G4 with benh-2.4.10-kernel, printing with CUPS (which I
would recommend - but that's not the topic).

I've seen that when USB wasn't configured correctly.
What I had to do was the following:
1.)Kernel needed CONFIG_USB and CONFIG_USB_PRINTER.
mknod /dev/usb/usblp0 c 180 0
3.)adding the following line in /etc/fstab a line after the
none /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs defaults 0 0
That's it. ;-)
Hope it helps
