I don't know whether this is the driver or the printer, but I have my
I just got a DECcolorwriter 520ic. It appears to print OK under DOS,
but under NetBSD 1.0 (i386) it seems to print gibberish. I haven't
installed any kind of DOS driver, so I assume DOS is spewing straight
ASCII to the printer (successfully), but I could (of course) be wrong.
I'm using /dev/lpt0, which is configured to interrupt on IRQ 7.
So, has anyone had any trouble with parallel printers on the 386
NetBSD port, and/or any experience with a DECcolorwriter 520ic?
