After a Network Update Printing developed flaw
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:55:05 EST
Description of Problem:Every page printed includes a first page with @PJL @PJL
JOB NAME="LPDOMATIC" and the third page has @PJL RESET @PJL EOJ. The first and
third pages are always identical.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat version 7.2
Always happens since first Internet update
Steps to Reproduce:
1. lpd filename
2 pages of unwanted print
1 page of print.
Cannot duplicate, but have sent request for more system details to the nice
person who reported this.
Have attempted to duplicate after receiving more info from user with no success.
Determined that RHSA-2001:138-10 was the cause of the problems he had been
expriencing, and offered three potental fixes:
- restart printer with: /sbin/service lpd restart
- install latest version of foomatic
- remove and re-add printer via System->Printer Configuration
Awaiting user reponse.
User was able to fix problem by rolling back certain packages:
"I had the problem and cured it by re-loading the "old"
version 7.2 rpm's for lpg and printing. The new versions
came with the automatic update system. I suspect it might
have been a local problem of a mix of old and new software."
So, not a bug per se - more of a package conflict/config problem.
Problem reappeared after the user re-updated his system - he couldn't find docs
that told him how to disable the rhnsd.
> If you want to disable the rhnsd service (which checks in with RHN every
> 2 hours), you can run:
> /sbin/chkconfig rhnsd off
> And to keep it off, run:
> and deselect rhnsd.
