Description of problem:
When printing large print jobs, the last page along with half of the page proir
to the last is completely missing with no error messages on the printer (HPLJ
5si, and HPLJ 8000). I'm running RH7.2 on a Dell PE 6400 (dual 900mhz). I'm
running kernel 2.4.9-21 with LPRng 3.7.4-28. The jobs are usually 700000 Bytes
total and usually around 5000-7000 bytes are missing when printed. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  SAME AS ABOVE

Expected Results:  The whole file should print

Comment 2 Gerry Maddock 2002-04-19 14:22:27 EDT
I have stopped lprng, ran checkpc -f, and restarted lprng and same thing
happens. No partitons are full. Let me know if you need more info.
