Description g.hartman 1998-12-31 03:59:31 UTC
When I attempted to configure my DeskJet 600 printer using
the printtool, I wasn't able to get PostScript printing to
work.  Ultimately, it turned out that ghostscript was
dropping a core file.  This problem only appears when I use
24 bits per pixel.

The following line will reproduce the problem.

/usr/bin/gs -q -sDEVICE=cdj500 -r300x300 -sPAPERSIZE=letter
-dNOPAUSE -dSAFER -sOutputFile=- -dBitsPerPixel=24
/usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters/testpage.ps > /dev/null

This bug has been verified to be true. The line as entered seg faulted
on a test machine. It has been assigned to a developer.
