I'm actually suffering the same problem after upgrading to 6.0
Printing was working, low res, but hey.

I'm getting a
lp: driver loaded but no devices found
They would appear to have the right major/minor numbers as far as I can
root (/dev)# ./MAKEDEV lp
root (/dev)# cat > /dev/lp0
bash: /dev/lp0: No such device
root (/dev)# ls -l lp*
crw-rw---- 1 root daemon 6, 0 Nov 25 05:10 lp0
crw-rw---- 1 root daemon 6, 1 Nov 25 05:10 lp1
crw-rw---- 1 root daemon 6, 2 Nov 25 05:10 lp2
