Here's the lsmod output:
Module Size Used by
vmmon 18436 0 (unused)
rtc 5272 0 (autoclean)
Here is the recent /var/log/lpr.log output (just after a failed print job):

Here is /etc/printcap:
# /etc/printcap: printer capability database. See printcap(5).
# You can use the filter entries df, tf, cf, gf etc. for
# your own filters. See /etc/filter.ps, /etc/filter.pcl and
# the printcap(5) manual page for further details.

# rlp|Remote printer entry:\
Note that I can't even cat filename > /dev/lp0. Absolutely nothing
happens that I can see. Also, when I Print from Gimp (I have a CUPS and
gimp-print setup), then check "lpstat", I briefly see something in the
queue, then it disappears without any action to the printer. And this
was all working a month ago before I started messing with kernels; still
stumped; I thought I'd changed everything back to how it was!
