I, too, am having trouble with my parallel printer using PC/ix, and Interactive
is stumped. The problem is that output is >>>EXTREMELY<<< slow... like about
10 chars/sec max. This behavior is seen when doing `cat file > /dev/lp1',
so it isn't a spooler problem.
A few weeks ago I saw the tail end of a discussion of a similar problem,
ending with `don't use keymap'. I don't, unless it's buried in a standard
distribution .????rc file which I can't find.
Of course, if I boot DOS, the printer works just fine, thanks. AAARRRGGHH.
Any enlightenment appreciated.
