I'm running a Slackware 7.0 (kernel 2.2.19) server to provide file and
print sharing to PC and Mac via LPD, Samba and Appletalk. It works, but
there's one inconvenience - large print jobs take a while to get tranferred
to the server before they start printing and sometimes they even threaten to
exhaust free disk space on the server (a while meaning - 15 minutes or more.
Something's screwed up with Acrobat Reader and some PDFs on Macs - it
creates 200Mb jobs out of 20 page documents and I can't fix it. The same PDF
from a PC makes a modest 6Mb job). Is there a way to make LPD send the job
to the printer as it's received? Or some other solution? Suggestions?
