I have a system that once a week or so, all print jobs fail to print,
running 'lpstat' command just hangs at the command line, so does
/usr/lib/lpshut. I then go in and kill all "lp" and "lpsched" processes,
as well as "wpexc51" and restart the lpsched - this starts things running
again. I have noticed that if I do a 'ps -e | grep lp' there are 2
lpsched processes running, and a bunch of lp processes. I have also
noticed there will be *multiple* wpexc51 processes, which I think only
one should be there. wpexc51 is the proprietary Word Perfect 5.1
spooler that links up with lp.
Has anyone else out there had this problem?
