printing with CUPS and libusb, spooler hangs
I've got a HP LaserJet 3030 Printer/Scanner/FAX/Copier
My computer is running a debian woody with Kernel 2.4.26 i386 SMP
Formerly, I used module printer.o and hpoj-printer driver classes (ptal-mlc for USB).
All worked (NEARLY) perfect.
But occasionally the system crashed while printing.
I found out (as mentioned on the hpoj website), that esp.
my combination (Kernel 2.4, SMP, module printer.o and USB-printing)
seems to crash sometimes.
O.K. - I unloaded the module printer.o as mentioned on hpoj-website
and I'm now using libusb 0.1-4.
The system does not hang, but the printing spooler does occasionally
after some pages of printing or sometimes does not start printing at all.
I see the printing tasks and can remove them but they sometimes don't print.
/var/log/messages and /var/log/syslog as well as some logs in /var/log/cups say nothing about libusb, ptal printer drivers or a hanging spooler.
Seems like an andless spooling loop...
Where can I search?
same problem on debian sarge, Kernel 2.6.8 i386 SMP, libusb 0.1-4.
[EDIT: O.K. I see on hpoj.sourceforge.net:
recent news, 18-april-2005: use HPLIP instead of HPOJ for USB-connected
I'll try.....and report.]
