Printing problem between S2.1 & bsd (S1.1)

Printing problem between S2.1 & bsd (S1.1)

Post by Steven Heaco » Wed, 02 Jun 1993 04:59:22

We recently started having problems printing between Solaris 2.1 machines  
and Solaris 1.1 and Solaris 1.0 print servers.

Restarting, removing jobs, re-installing printers doesn't seem to have any  
effect.  The machines are in netgroup and allowed to rsh to the print  
server machines so permissions don't seem to be the problem.

Has anyone encountered this and if so, any suggestions on how to fix  
(short of re-installing Solaris 2.x)...

Printing problem between S2.1 & bsd (S1.1)

Printing from Solaris 2.1 clients to 1.1 (ie BSD lpr) print servers is
broken.  It's a known bug.  Does anyone know if it is fixed in 2.2?

1. is [ s1 = s2 ] a Bourne shell built-in?

My aging Unix manual shows that tests on strings and files using the
'test' command can be written using the alternative [ s1 = s2 ] form,
but I have always assumed it's still a call to an external command.
Accordingly, I endeavour to use 'case' in preference to either form
of test wherever possible, solely in the interests of speed.

But on glancing through the ksh manual, I see that the [ s1 = s2 ]
form of file and expression tests is built-in to ksh. I have been
surprised that more sh script writers do not use 'case' in place of
the square bracket tests, where feasible, and it occurs to me that
perhaps the square bracket tests are now also a part of the sh shell.

Is this so?  We don't have sh here, so I'm using bash or ksh instead.
