Solaris 10 update 8 printing on Sparc

Why is printing so hard to configure. Anyone able to assist?

EDIT: lprng was attempted to be compiled and installed. Although installed, had issues with the filters. So printing didn’t work. Next up someone tried to install CUPS and this too failed for certain reasons. Last attempt was then to use the native printer support in Solaris and this too seems to have failed.

Anyone got any links to any reasonable good howto’s that can be followed to have either the native stuff work, and/or get cups to work on Solaris Sparc platform. Have a few network printers that need to be printed too from the Sparc host in question and not having much luck it would appear. Grrr
