No, I have not even configured a printer. I was hoping I could do that

Do you have the parport kernel module installed, and the above
directories and files in /proc with appropriate permissions?
Most important, do you use the parallel port for your printer?
I *did* notice however on the machine where cupsd runs when I look in proc:
ro@camel:/proc/sys/dev$ ls /proc/sys/dev
but on the machine where cupsd dies there is a /proc/sys/dev/parport
linstation1:/proc/sys/dev/parport# ls -al
dr-xr-xr-x 4 root root 0 Dec 5 07:53 .
dr-xr-xr-x 5 root root 0 Dec 5 07:53 ..
dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Dec 5 07:53 default
dr-xr-xr-x 3 root root 0 Dec 5 07:53 parport0
Also the machine where cupsd runs has a /dev/lp1 and the nonworking
machine does not.
They are both running slpd with out of the box slp.conf. Could the
missing lp1 special file
be the problem? Where does /dev/lp1 come from?
