Description of problem:
When trying to create a new JetDirect print queue (no other queues
configured yet) to a HP LJ 5M printer I get this error after applying
all changes and waiting for the test page:
Problem while sending CUPS test page to queue 'hplj5m':
lpr: unable to print file: server-error-service-unavailable
After clicking ok and manually selecting the CUPS test page from the
test menu it works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup a new JetDirect printer
How about if you increase the sleep time at line 1159 of
/usr/share/printconf/util/addQueue.py? It looks like:
for 5 seconds -- try 15 or something.
Line number is 1291 on my system. Anyway, this seems to fix the problem.
What's the smallest delay that works? Does a 10-second delay work,
for instance? Is this a particularly slow machine?
Weird. Today it sometimes even works with a 5 secs delay, but 10 secs
seems to be always ok.
The machine is a VMware image with bridged networking, 256 MB RAM
running on 3 GHz PIV, 2 GB RAM host system. The VMware sessions feels
indeed a little bit slow compared to a FC1 VMware image.
I've changed this to 10 seconds in CVS. Will be picked up by the next
