Synopsis:          Updated printing packages available to fix minor bugs
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2001:174-11
Issue date:        2001-12-17

1. Topic:

Updates to the printing system are available to fix a collection of minor bugs.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.2 - i386, ia64

3. Problem description:

This update fixes the following bugs:

  The oki4w driver requires a daemon that Red Hat does not ship. printconf
now warns if this daemon is not running.

  Printing to PostScript printers using non-US Letter page sizes sometimes
 cut-off pages. This is fixed.

  On some printers, large print jobs sometimes halted halfway
through the job. This is fixed.

  In some cases, the data cache was not used properly, forcing data to be
regenerated. The fix to the cache layer speeds up starting printconf.

  There were some bugs in foomatic which broke some drivers that used '('
or ')' in their names. This is fixed.

  A foomatic bug concerning file descriptor manipulations has been fixed.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):
