While trying to solve a pesky printer problem from the command line I get
as a response to trying to execute the following:

root at lildell:/etc/cups/ppd# lpadmin -p OfficeJet -v parallel:/dev/lp0 -m OfficeJet.ppd

permissions seem to be in order:
root at lildell:/etc/cups/ppd# ls -l /usr/sbin/lpadmin
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 21508 2008-10-15 10:30 /usr/sbin/lpadmin

Has anyone any idea what's happening?
