Can't get HP3650 printer working

I can't get my HP 3650 printer working. I followed http://wiki2.archlinux.org/index.php/CUPS%20setup

but when I try tail /var/log/messages
I get:
tail: cannot open `/var/log/messages' for reading: No such file or directory
I think that means that my kernel doesn't find printer. I have compiled kernel by my self, maybe I have made a mistake?

Well, I have the same printer, and it works fine.

Did you use the web interface to set it up?

If you don't have /var/log/messages then you probably messed up your daemons array in /etc/rc.conf: Check if everything is there as it should be. At least syslogd and klogd should be there (preferably as first).

If you couldn't connect to cups, it probably wasn't running, and, as i3839 said, your problem lies in /etc/rc.conf.
