Oh, bad.  Which packages did you have installed when this last worked: were they
from the CD, or from a previous update?
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-02-12 05:24:20 EST
I have a server (200 mmx i586) with the printer. After further experimentation I
can now print with this printer using the stp driver on the server. 

My workstation (800 celeron) cannot print using any driver (using a remote lpd
queue). Oddly enough this is the reverse of before the patches. I applied the
patches from the mirror site mirror.aarnet.edu.au. 

Having reflected on the problem I now also remember that I applied the ximian
packages after being able to sucessfully print. Browsing the ximian packages I
can see no packages that leap out and say "I broke your printing". I am
attempting to print just the a4 test page

still broken but I am currently downloading the most recent foomatic available
via ximian updates .


I will let you know.

Email working again. Printing still broken after updating rpms :-(
Comment 8 Tim Waugh 2002-02-22 09:29:46 EST
Is the 'epson' printer queue on the server set up as a raw queue?  Please attach
its local.adl.

I think what you want to do is set up the server so that it's queue accepts
PostScript, and set up the workstation so that it uses a Postscript network
printer.  The machines talk Postscript to each other, and the server converts it
to 'Epson language'.
