I'm sorry but I don't understand because in your post to "Hammer time RC.17" on Nov 19th you stated that:
"Printer Printing !!!"
Correct, however, that was with kernel-2.6.21/22.* not with kernel-18.104.22.168. With that kernel I only found that I cannot print when I tried it in VL5.8. Before that I did not try printing with it in VL5.9 assuming it will work like with the other kernels before which when I then tried it showed it was a wrong assumption.
Please see as well my posting under Distro Development-new kernel to try.----22.214.171.124
