Description greg 1999-10-28 12:05:36 EDT
I am expierencing 2 problems:

first problem, The OKI182 selection from
/usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters does not show as a selection
in printtool.  The entry in printerdb looks correct.  I am
unable to track down why this is.

Second Problem:

Occasionally when printing from our job tracking software,
the print filter magic routines choke and spit out a
message at the printer:

No way to print this type of input file:      AN-channel
Fasttracker "oktalyzer" module sound

I have removed the if line from printcap and that resolves
the problem partially, now after printing an invoice the
printer does not eject to the next invoice.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-28 12:15:59 EDT
Is the oki182 driver compiled into the ghostscript you're using?

As for your second problem, file is apparently misidentifying
the files from the job tracking software. Removing the lines
referencing 'Fasttracker modules' from /usr/share/magic should
solve this for you.
Comment 2 greg 1999-10-28 12:22:59 EDT
The ghostscript version is ghostscript-5.10-10  the stock build that
comes with redhat 6.1.  I don't have the SRPM handy at the moment, so
I do not know if the OKI182 Driver is compiled in, however, I would
assume that it is, or is that an over assumption ?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-28 12:38:59 EDT
You can use gs -h to see the compiled in drivers... in which case,
I see that it's not there.

Fixed in ghostscript-5.10-11, in next Raw Hide release.
