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.
Please retest 3.0.7 + the patch at
no feedback in several weeks. Closing as fixed in 3.0.8.
originally reported against 3.0aph24. Bugzilla spring cleaning.
Removing old alpha versions.
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
