Description sandy 2001-03-04 19:27:43 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1-0.1.9 i686)


After installing an Epson Stylus color 600 printer (using March 1, 2001
RPMS from  http://people.redhat.com/crutcher/printing/) I can print a text
file, but printing from;

Netscape halts printing after a good start (stalls in middle of first
page).

Gedit printing translates into garbage output on printer.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Epson Stylus color 600
2.Print from Netscape
3.Print from Gedit
	

Actual Results:  for 2. the printing stalls,
for 3. the printout is garbage

Expected Results:  normal printed output

Works same with wolverine and RPMS from
http://people.redhat.com/crutcher/printing/
Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-03-05 15:47:04 EST
We (Red Hat) should really address this before the next release.
Comment 2 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-03-06 12:26:49 EST
Is this a localy attached printer? There is some possibility that this is at
least partially a (recently solved) kernel issue. At least the stall part.

I will look into gedit.
Comment 3 keith adamson 2001-03-06 21:32:53 EST
Printer is local connected to parallel port.

Can I help verify problem or install kernel patch?
Comment 4 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-03-07 16:59:42 EST
Hmm, just asked. That fix isn't in rawhide yet.

How long are the jobs you are trying to print?
Do the testpages in printconf-gui work?
Which driver are you using (and is it better with the other driver?)
Comment 5 sandy 2001-03-08 01:14:26 EST
Jobs are 1-2 pages

printconf-gui text page prints OK.

printconf-gui postscript page hangs after about 1/5 page, the
printconf-gui  hangs as well, and ps -ef displays these jobs hanging;

After this the printer did start for about another 1/4 page before hanging
again.
cancel 900 unhangs everything.

Comment 6 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-03-09 16:39:53 EST
I really think that this is a kernel issue.
I will notify you when the kernel that I think fixes this hits rawhide.
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2001-03-13 10:50:29 EST
Please try the -0.1.19 kernel (currently in rawhide).
Comment 8 sandy 2001-03-14 19:08:13 EST
now works :o) !!!  Thanks
