Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16991
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
Since rc2 contains LPRng-3.6.22 and the recently announce 3.6.24 fixes some
bug, I am putting this into bugzilla -- you may have updated already but,
"just in case".
Here is the announcement from the LPRng mailing list:
LPRng: LPRng-3.6.24 available
Date: Sat, 19 Aug 2000 14:28:24 -0700 (PDT)
This release solves a couple of problems caused by the addition
of the LPQ status caching. If you are using LPRng 3.6.22 or
LPRng 3.6.23 please upgrade to this release.
Also added support for parallel port printers, but it appears
that it is mostly useless unless you use the ifhp filter.

And I removed the wrong line so that the data files were not being
deleted when a job was completed. Helps to read the control file and
get the data file names...

There was a 'cut and pasteo' that caused me to use the wrong value
to get trim lpq status.

LPRng HOWTO - added small section on setting up Solaris lp queues to
forward jobs to LPRng/BSD printers.
IPV6 Support fixed up a bit to actually work...
(Spotted during testing, now that we actually have IPV6 working
on our router.)
Added a 'flush cached status' when a spool server exits. Now you
get the correct status when there is no active server.
Modified the 'Read_write_timeout' code to be consistent with reading
status from parallel port printers the way that the ifhp filter
Found a minor sillyness in the 'send_to_logger()' code - I carefully
format data and then toss it way. Now I do checks first.
Fixed up lpq status generation - only read a small part of the status
file for information
