Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2006-10-23 20:30:48 UTC
Reported via HP:

Description of problem:

cups in RHEL 4 (1.1.22) cannot print files larger than 2 GB. This functionality
is available in the 1.2 release of cups, can it be backported to the 1.1.22 (or
can 1.1.22 be fixed to enable printing of larger files)?

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2006-10-24 10:32:06 UTC
Original change request was here:


There is a (slightly incomplete) patch there, and a date when the real fix went
into the subversion repository, so it shouldn't be too hard to track down.

Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2006-10-24 10:43:25 UTC
