Canon/HP/Xerox printer drivers for dec alpha/OSF

Canon/HP/Xerox printer drivers for dec alpha/OSF

Post by Timothy J. Micko » Sat, 03 Feb 1996 04:00:00




I recently acquired a Dec 2000/300 alpha workstation
and loaded Digital Unix v3.2c (formerly OSF).  I have
three printers, an HP DeskJet 500, a Canon BJC-610, and
a Xerox WorkCenter 350.  What's the availability of
alpha/UNIX drivers for these devices?  I'm sure I can
hack out the printcaps (tho' if anyone has them I'd be grateful),
but significant surfing at the HP, Canon, DEC gatekeeper, and
numerous web ftp sites has turned up no drivers.

Anyone have a clue?  (as i obviously don't...)
thanx

1. AMD running on OSF/1 (dec/alpha) version 3.2 run on OSF/1 4.0?

Attention:

        I have a configuration of AMD built under OSF/1 version 3.2

running on OSF/1 version 4.0.  

        I am experiencing a large amount of NFS timeouts and retrys

to remove files between to OSF/1 (dec/alpha) systems.

        One system is running the OSF/1 3.2 OS and the other is running

4.0 OS version.  Both running the same AMD build; (AMD version 5.2.2.2)

%amd -v <cr>
