Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3533
lpd problem with remote printing...
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
Upgraded print server from 5.2 to 6.0. Following upgrade,
any job submitted remotely to the print server for a queue
with an input filter does not go through, and generates the
following errors in /var/log/messages:
Jun 16 14:18:29 redstart lpd: Can't create temp cfp
Jun 16 14:18:29 redstart last message repeated 1011 times
Jun 16 14:18:29 redstart lpd: lp: can't scan
Removing the IF filter on the print server fixes the
problem. This was confirmed to occur on a fresh 6.0
install, as well as an upgrade. Local printing to the same
queue works properly with or without an IF filter.
Additionally, Samba printing will not produce output on ANY
queue, although connections can be made and are registered
normally in /var/log/samba/log. There is simply no output.
1) the cfp problem should be fixed in lpr-0.36-4, available
from Raw Hide.
2) uncomment the 'printing = bsd' line in the smb.conf file...
(this was fixed in a later samba release)
