Description Eric Schwartz 2003-01-06 18:45:09 UTC
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):

How reproducible:
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. :)
Actual results:
Prints several reams of test pages.

Expected results:
Prints only one test page.

Was it set to print it via JetDirect?  Or else how?

Comment 2 Eric Schwartz 2003-01-06 19:09:28 UTC
It's an HP printer appliance.  I can get you specific details if you need them.

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2003-01-06 19:18:13 UTC
Please attach 'printconf-tui --Xexport', after making sure that you've blanked
out any passwords that you might have configured in it.

LPD-type transport; LPRng bug of some sort.  Any idea how to reproduce the problem?
