Description of problem:
Good: Configured my Samba connected HP932C with printconf-gui tool. Good:
Tested text print and it worked fine.
Bad: Used enscript and the printer started printing pages of garbage.
Bad: I tried all 4 GS drivers cdj550, cdj880, hpdj and stpr ( stpr blew up
and spit out a dump).
Good: I then manually created the enscript ps file, fed that into gs and
then used smbclient to print the file, that worked. I tried both cdj550
and cdj880, they both worked fine when the printconf stuff was by-passed.
Bad: I was running Red Hat 7.0 and upgraded it to 7.1.
Good: I didn't have any problems printing or using enscript under 7.0.
Bad: This all started with 7.1.
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Printer spit out pages of garbage
Expected Results: File printed on the printer
Upgraded from Red Hat 7.0 to Red Hat 7.1
Verified that Gostscript will process the postscript file correctly when
removing printconf from the process.
1) Created a ps file using enscript
2) Converted for printing using gs
3) Printed the file successfully using smbclient print command
can you attach the following file?

Does this problem still happen now, or did it get solved?
Yes 6 months later, nothing has been solved. I supplied some information
several months ago but am still waiting for a FIX!
Do the packages at <ftp://people.redhat.com/twaugh/errata-candidate/> help?
