weird qconfig thing

Post by Kate Julif » Wed, 03 May 2000 04:00:00

I have a qconfig question.

I have two queuse for the same physical printer.

I generated them using SMITTY

One queue is called sleepy_nt

The other queue is called sleepy

The reason I have these two queues is that they go to different remote
spoolers and I am testiung which remote spooler is more efficient.

However I notice a strange thing  in qconfig

The entries generated in qconfig are


up = TRUE
host = machine1

backend = /usr/lib/lpd/rembak -T 120

and for the other queue


up = TRUE
host = machine2

backend = /usr/lib/lpd/rembak -T 120

My question is: WHY would the rq  entry be "sleepy" for BOTH entries???

Both the queue names and the decriptions were differnt when I set them
up in SMITTY and when queried in SMITTY. That is, sleepy_nt queue has
the "description "sleepy_nt" and the "sleepy" queuename has "sleepy" as
the description. So why is rq the same for both in qconfig and  will
this not cauise a problem? And where would the sleepy_nt be getting the
rq of "sleepy" from?

I have a number of other printing problems and need to sort this out.

I tried changing the rq rntry for sleepy_nt to sleepy_nt but this
appears to down the queue

1. (newbie) weird thing with linux applications

Hi, gurus

here's something weird with my freebsd box that I have absolutely no idea:

The realplayer ran fine yesterday, then I boot into win2k mode, then I
rebooted into freebsd mode, then I run reaplyer, then it crashed with
signal 11.

I tried to use gdb to work with the core file, then it says that
/lib/ cannot be found. Then I found a in
/compat/linux/lib directory. Then I su'ed and did a
cd /; ln -s /compat/linux/lib
then realplayer came back to life ...

I tried to read /etc/rc.conf and linux_enable was YES. /etc/rc mentioned
something like /compat/linux/sbin/ldconfig. Then I did a

Forgiveness# /compat/linux/sbin/ldconfig -p | grep libm (libc6) => /usr/lib/ (libc5) => /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/ (libc6) => /lib/ (libc5) => /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/

It seemed that the directory was screwed up, but next time if
is referred to by some linux application then there's nothing I can do.

So cound anyone give any insight? The strange thing is, it worked just
