Description of problem:
After updating netpbm to 9.24-9.80.2 from 9.24-6 in accordance with
RHSA-2003:060-01, tiff printing no longer works. (Printing to HP Laserjet
printers using the ljet4 driver, but I don't think that's relevant.) Tiffs print
as "hieroglyphics", just as they do when the netpbm package is not installed.

Downgrading to 9.24-6 fixes the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade netpbm to 9.24-9.80.2
2. Print a tiff using lpr.

Actual Results:  Tiff prints out as "hieroglyphics".

Expected Results:  Tiff should print out correctly.

I'm using LPRng, not CUPS.

Comment 2 Brock Sides 2003-04-04 15:16:22 UTC
It appears that some files were left out of netpbm-progs-9.24-9.80.2, notably

Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2003-04-29 10:48:25 UTC
This is an unfortunate sideeffect of the security fixes that went into the
update. Printing pictures directly was considered a huge security risk and
therefor has been removed from the package.

Read ya, Phil
