NewsPrint and Solaris 2.5

NewsPrint and Solaris 2.5

Post by Neil Waybrig » Wed, 20 Mar 1996 04:00:00



We upgraded one of our SPARC 20's from 4.1.3 to Solaris 2.5.  The
installation went well, but when we re-installed NewsPrint (2.5) for
our SPARC Printer (lpvi printer), the newsprint install program
installed some patches (apparently four), and refused to function
correctly.  I got it to print once, but after that, no joy.  I get the
following error when I use "lpq" to look at the print queue:
agua% lpq
Warning: sluggo is down:  %%[ System Error: Unable to map print buffer
to disk
Rank   Owner      Job             Files                       Total
Size
active judys      33              /etc/hosts                  120
bytes
agua% ps -ef | grep lpq

Any thoughts or suggestions?  Thanks.....

First make sure that you'r using NeWSprint 2.5b. then you'll need to apply
the following patches:

101655-04  101821-01  102055-01  102113-03  102114-03  102211-03

1. Solaris 2.5 & NeWSprint 2.5

Hi,

Has anyone had any experience getting NeWSprint 2.5 working with
a SPARCprinter on an SBus card under Solaris 2.5?

I have installed successfully and added the printer.  It seems
to print the first job and then the job remains the queue.  If I
'cancel' the job and try to print again the second job just hangs
and never prints.

I get given this error on both jobs:

 %%[ System Error: Unable to map print buffer to disk

Thanks in advance,
