Description mal 2000-05-21 22:03:38 UTC
Currently /usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters/printerdb
has the following problem when accessing the database:
1. There are many places in
when line continuation
 backslash(\) and line feed following right after \ is incorrect.
In many places in /usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters/printerdb
there are spaces after \ . This is incorrect.
Line feed should follow right after the backslash (\)

2. Some printer entry names have a space in the entry name,
but most of the printer configuration tools do not understand this.
For example "HP DeskJet 1000"
There was no such problem in Redhat 6.1, all StartEntry:
names were like "HP_DeskJet_1000"
In RedHat 6.2 there are names with spaces which oftern cause a problem.
