Description of problem:
i have a problem with lpr -b
i do font uploads using the -b option. on redhat 6.2 lpr the -b options
works the files are not scanned and put to the printer. i recently upgrade
to redhat 7.1. the lpr -b option scans all the files. this cause the lpd
to go crazy. it takes 30 mins to upload the fonts. on 6.2 about 45 seconds.
am i do something wrong with this new lpd. and option maybe. tried -b -l -
h still nothing.
the only way i can get it to work is if i use lpr -Y @192.168.0.x.. but
whats the -b -l options for.
very confused on this option. i am not sure if it a bug.
Steps to Reproduce:
fonts upload mac's and binary files
1.lpr -b -h -P laser /etc/******
Actual Results: the lpd is scanning the files
Expected Results: send the job to the printer without scanning
What do you mean by 'scanned'? Could it be that it's copying the files to the
spool area? How big are these fonts files?
