└─>Support for console on line printer
In linux kernel since version 2.6.20 (release Date: 2007-02-04)  
If you want kernel messages to be printed out as they occur, you
can have a console on the printer. This option adds support for
doing that; to actually get it to happen you need to pass the
option "console=lp0" to the kernel at boot time.

If the printer is out of paper (or off, or unplugged, or too
busy..) the kernel will stall until the printer is ready again.
By defining CONSOLE_LP_STRICT to 0 (at your own risk) you
can make the kernel continue when this happens,
but it'll lose the kernel messages.

If unsure, say N.
