I'm running a recent NetBSD/macppc 4.99.4 kernel (userland is somewhat
older). I'm trying to use a HP Laserjet 1020 USB printer:
ulpt0 at uhub3 port 1 configuration 1 interface 0
ulpt0: Hewlett-Packard HP LaserJet 1020, rev 2.00/1.00, addr 2, iclass 7/1
ulpt0: using bi-directional mode
Following pointers on http://www.linuxprinting.org, I went to
http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/ and installed foo2zjs. It says that I have
to upload a firmware file to the printer, but
# cat /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/sihp1020.dl > /dev/ulpt0
seems to do nothing. top says that the shell is in the "usbsyn"
state. After a couple of minutes, it says "device busy". Actually
trying to print anything meets the same fate.
