Okipage 4x under Linux?

Okipage 4x under Linux?

Post by Bo Rose » Sun, 10 May 1998 04:00:00

I have an okipage 4w printer and was wondering if it is possible to get it to
work under Linux (RH5.0)?

1. Toshiba 4x v. Mitsumi 4x CD-ROM

Here are the statistics I have compiled:

                Toshiba                         Mitsumi
Buffer          256k                            128k + 128k virtual
DTR Mode 1      600 kb/sec                      600 kb/sec
DTR Mode 2      684 kb/sec                      684 kb/sec
 Random         150 ms                          
 4 Stroke                                       400 ms
 3 Stroke                                       230 ms
 MTBF                                           15,000

I can get either for $218.  Now, which one should I get?  Does the buffer
make that much difference?  Problems or compatibility problems?  Will
Linux have a problem with either?  Which is ACTUALLY faster?

I need to get a CD-ROM ASAP, and have about $200 to spend... and Quad
speed... either IDE or SCSI.  All information would be appreciated.
