I have the same thing happening on two computers configured with Mandrake
9.1

...ends up with:
0x40f10677 in waitpid () from /lib/i686/libpthread.so.0
#0  0x40f10677 in waitpid () from /lib/i686/libpthread.so.0
#1  0x40636e7b in KCrash::defaultCrashHandler(int) ()
   from /usr/lib/libkdecore.so.4

Looks like a KDE problem.

I noticed the same thing attempting to set up faxing vis KDE.

When using browser Konqueror crashes on attempt to print - as does ANY KDE
program ... (conincidentally, Mozilla also won't print - does NOTHING.
Galeon prints fine.)

Any KDE answer folks out there?

Think I'll cross post to kde group.

1. Is there a printer driver for Canon BJC-250?

This is such a popular printer (and the one I use) but I can't find a
driver for it.  I am using Redhat 5.1 and have to use the BJ-240 driver,
the BJC-600/4000 drivers don't work, but I can't get color printing with
the BJ-240 driver.  Is there a way to adjust the BJC drivers available
or does anyone know of a driver being written for this?

                                 Thanks,

                                        Vanya
