Changing the MODE_SELECT kernel parameter
If you suspect that your printer is deselecting and reselecting itself
after each line, change the value of the MODE_SELECT kernel parameter.
(This works with both polled and standard lp devices.)
The default value of MODE_SELECT is 1,
which enables mode-select checking.
To disable mode-select checking,
set MODE_SELECT to 0.
This removes the printing delay incurred by these checks.
To change the value of MODE_SELECT, use the Hardware/Kernel Manager as described in ``Configuring drivers with the Hardware/Kernel Manager'' in the SCO OpenServer Handbook.
