Description Norbert Wüst 2004-06-09 03:29:28 UTC
Printer drivers (Kyocera-mita FS 1800+ KX) from kyocera (http://www.service.
kyoceramita.de/html/view/Downloads/Drivers.asp?table=Drivers#.asp) don´t work on 
SuSE Linux (9.x 8.x), Samba 3.0.x

I tested from W2k(Sp4) and NT4(SP6a) with different messages. I tested on SuSE 
Linux from 8.1 to 9. with the same behavior

You can choose the new driver and the files seems to be transferred to 
Samba-share print$. But at the end on NT4 there comes a message "Cannot change 
to the driver, returing to old configuration". On W2k there is no message, but 
if you want to change configuration, a message comes "No driver installed. Do 
you want to install driver..."

The classical Drivers based on Microsoft technonlogy from Kyocer work fine, but 
there are not all Options needed available.

I tried to read the log.smbd (with debug leve = 3), but I don´r really 
understand everthing. I found several lines with flag STATUS_BUFFER_OVERLOW. 
They come only, while testing with KX-drivers.

no feedback in several weeks.  Closing as fixed in 3.0.8.

Removing old alpha versions.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
