Description Reinder van der Veen 2001-05-15 14:45:06 EDT
Description of Problem:
After updating RH 6.2 to RH 7.0 printing on an Oki 395 printer became 
slow. Printing stops after 3 or 4 jobs and goes idle for a few minutes 
before printing other 3 or 4  jobs. I'm sending 10-20 jobs to the printer 
at once. Before (on RH 6.2) it did not happen. The printer is connected 
through a 3 port HP Jetdirect and has a small 23K buffer. Another printer 
connected (Brother laser)  works fine (has a bigger buffer). In 
de "status.printer" file I see a wait 287 (seconds?). Is it possible to 
reduce the waiting time for one specific printer? Or increase de timeout 
period for a specific printer?

Does this still happen?  Which kernel are you using now (uname -r)?
Comment 2 Reinder van der Veen 2001-05-30 06:11:21 EDT
It still happens
uname -r: 2.2.16-22
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2001-05-30 06:18:29 EDT
Please upgrade to 2.2.19-7.0.1 and see if it still happens. (2.2.19-7.0.1 
fixes some security problems, so you should upgrade anyhow.)
Comment 4 Reinder van der Veen 2001-06-07 04:48:39 EDT
Updated the firmware of HP JetDirect EX plus 3. Problem did not occur last 3 
days. Did not update the kernel (takes to much time to get the right rpm's. If 
problem occurs again I will update to RH 7.1.
Thanks for the assistance.
