Description Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-10 19:29:07 EDT
When printing a page on a USB printer, the job often stops somewhere in the
job (e.g. after half a page). When using the same printer with a parallell
port, the jobs goes through. Communication problems?

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Release-Candidate #1
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2000-08-01 06:08:57 EDT
Does it stop altogether?  With the USB in 2.4.0-testxx I was seeing occasional
long delays with USB, which seemed to go away with test5.  Perhaps there are
some backported fixes we need?
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-01 07:45:28 EDT
Yes, it stops altogether. Please check for important fixes in test5 (there are
some wrt. USB storage as well, which I would like backported... possibly more)
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2000-08-03 08:22:48 EDT
Is this with ohci, uhci or usb-uhci by the way?  I don't know the USB code very
well so I'm not sure which changes we want..
Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-03 09:39:38 EDT

Printing works fine with a USB-to-parallell-port converter, BTW - but not with
the native USB driver.
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2000-08-04 05:24:50 EDT
Does 2.2.16-18 make things any better?
Comment 7 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-07 12:12:20 EDT
yes, it works fine now.
