I'm wondering if anyone has had a problem like this...
I've got two machines running slackware 3.3, and have found that lpd doesn't
start properly on bootup on the print server machine.
For example: if I boot the machine with the printer on it, whilst LPD _is_
running, any attempt to print gives the following:
stubbsy /home/paul 13 > ps -aux | grep LPD
daemon 101 0.0 4.4 1412 676 ? S 14:20 0:00 LPD
stubbsy /home/paul 14 > lpr .cshrc
stubbsy /home/paul 15 > lpq
Queue: 1 printable job
Server: no server active
Rank Owner/ID Class Job Files Size Time
Now, if I unspool the job, kill LPD, then restart it with /usr/sbin/lpd,
any prints after that work fine (ie, my printcap file is configured
Has anyone had a problem like this before? I didn't ever have any problems
with lpd back before slackware started supplying LPRng..
