Description Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-10 23:29:07 UTC
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?

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2000-07-30 22:40:02 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Release-Candidate #1

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2000-08-01 10:08:57 UTC
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 11:45:28 UTC
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 12:22:48 UTC
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 13:39:38 UTC

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 09:24:50 UTC
Does 2.2.16-18 make things any better?

Comment 7 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-07 16:12:20 UTC
yes, it works fine now.
