Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 81203
test page got "stuck" in spooler, prints forever
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:52 EST
Description of problem:
I printed a test page from printconf-gui, and was reasonably happy with it.
However, it got "stuck" somehow, and it kept printing the test page all weekend,
while nothing else could get a word in edgewise. Manually removing the
job with lprm worked, but it wasted a whole bunch of toner in the meantime.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
not sure yet; I'm just filing to get it in bugzilla
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a new printer (in this case, an hp 8550DN)
2. Print a test page
3. Get a book, this could take a while. :)
Prints several reams of test pages.
Prints only one test page.
Was it set to print it via JetDirect? Or else how?
It's an HP printer appliance. I can get you specific details if you need them.
Please attach 'printconf-tui --Xexport', after making sure that you've blanked
out any passwords that you might have configured in it.
Created attachment 89170 [details]
output of 'sudo printconf-tui --Xexport'
LPD-type transport; LPRng bug of some sort. Any idea how to reproduce the problem?
