General informations

Support for console on line printer found in arch/sh/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_LP_CONSOLE:

Help text

If you want kernel messages to be printed out as they occur, you can have a console on the printer. This option adds support for doing that; to actually get it to happen you need to pass the option "console=lp0" to the kernel at boot time.

If the printer is out of paper (or off, or unplugged, or too busy..) the kernel will stall until the printer is ready again. By defining CONSOLE_LP_STRICT to 0 (at your own risk) you can make the kernel continue when this happens, but it'll lose the kernel messages.

If unsure, say N.
