    FreeBSD 4.11-Stable. My printer has gone beszerk.......and, I cant clear
    the queue.

    Here is some output:

    bash-2.05b$ lpq -P hp
    Warning: unable to get address list for remote machine : No address
    associated with hostname

    This is a local printer on lp0. I set it up using apsfilter, and I dont use
    cups.

    I want to delete these jobs but dont know what else to do.

    5. reset the printer

    If you have watched a TV series only once, and you watch
    it again, it will be a rerun of the same episode.

    Your printcap disagrees with both of those sentences. See the handbook
    chapter on printing for the way to do this. If you have FreeBSD sources
    installed, /usr/src/etc/printcap should contain the sample file. Pay
    particular attention to the lp, rm, and rp parameters.
