We have two Sun IPCs running SunOS 4.1.3 that we would like to upgrade to
Solaris 2.5. Both have SPARC printers attached and are using (older)
NEWSprint. I have been told that NEWSprint is required for these printers.
Is this correct? Are there no alternatives (under Solaris 2.5) for driving
I presume that the old NEWSprint won't work under Solaris 2.5, correct? I
tried calling Sun about possibly upgrading, and was told that as of about
a week ago they no longer sold NEWSprint :-(.
Does this mean that these two users will have to decide between either
keeping their printers or getting Solaris 2.5?
TIA for any help.
