Description of problem:
The printer used here is Samsung ML-1710.

When using Samsung LPP drivers (1.1.1-3), one of the cups processes
crashes as seen here (excerpt from cups error_log):

D [04/Dec/2003:22:07:16 +0100] [Job 30] Caught fatal signal 11!! Aborting.

E [04/Dec/2003:22:07:16 +0100] PID 6420 stopped with status 111!

As a result, nothing is printed. Installing the samsung drivers also
causes the redhat-config-printer program to crash upon startup (python
errors: should this be reported as a bug?).

Please see the attached files fore more information.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Samsung LPP drivers (1.1.1-3)
2. Configure printer
3. Set cups logging to debug2
4. Try printing a page

Actual Results:  Printer did not react in any way (not even
dehibernated, so no data was sent). Errors in cups logfile (see
attached file).

Expected Results:  A nice test page... at least :)

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-12-05 12:44:43 UTC
This looks like what's actually crashing is the (binary only?) driver
that you added.

Comment 2 An. N 2003-12-05 13:46:58 UTC
That is true, after some research I did today it appears that the
Samsung drivers seem to have some serious problems.
