I'm running CUPS 1.2.10 on Fedora Core 6 (2.6.20-1.2948.fc6). I'm
running 9 printers. Two sets of three dot matrix printers (raw) on
Linksys print servers. One dot matrix printer on a D-Link print server.
Two HP laser printers (4101,4300) on ethernet connections.
I'm having a problem two or three times a week with one of the queues
hanging up. Sometimes I can disable the queue and it will finish
printing. Usually I will have to cancel the jobs to get it to go again.
Sometimes I can restart the job.
Usually this is on one of the printers hooked to a Linksys print server,
but sometimes on the laser printers. I haven't had it happen on the
D-Link connected printer yet.
I've tried restarting CUPS and disabling/enabling the queues
(/usr/sbin/cupsdisable; /usr/sbin/cupsdisable). I made a cron line to
disable/enable each printer every night. Still having the problems.
This is an upgrade from another machine. I installed the OS in April and
didn't notice a big problem until I moved the machine to its normal
place a couple of weeks ago. Maybe I loaded some update and it was just
effective when I rebooted?
