Does anybody had some success with CUPS, using the parallel backend on
/dev/lpt0? Mine is stalled and I could'nt get it to work, no mather what.

I'm getting "Printing page 1, 11%", with this remaining indefinitly on:

lp 62249 0.0 2.6 30576 13264 ?? IL 10:45AM 0:00.49

job-uuid=urn:uuid:90ecdc12-78ef-3231-7b74-cbf84c13340b (parallel)

I posted this on the CUPS forum, but I suspect that this is specific to
DFBSD. It looks like libexec/parallel is stalled waiting in a select
call, but I'm not sure yet. I've been working hours on this one.

If anyone have some information that could help. I can use lpd, but I
appreciate the fact that CUPS can be manage from a web page. This is
more intuitive for ordinary users when something goes wrong than opening
a telnet and using lpq and lprm commands.

Thanks for any help.
