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):

How reproducible:

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:

                time.sleep (5)

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?
Comment 4 Bernd Bartmann 2004-02-18 11:50:52 EST
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
