Cups with parallel port printer consumes 100% CPU
« on: 2012/02/15, 18:56:51 »
Hi,

after d-u about two weeks ago (with inclusion of separate package cups-filters) my laserjet 4 on parport stopped printing. /usr/lib/cups/backends/parallel consumed 100% CPU.
Downgrade to testing solved the issue.

Found these Bugreports:
http://www.cups.org/str.php?L4025+P0+S-2+C0+I0+E0+M20+Q
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=659736

I experimented a bit and found a (quick'n'dirty) hack.
- Did a d-u to get newest cups (parallel consumes 100% CPU).
- Replaced /usr/lib/cups/backend/parallel (in cups-filters_1.0.1-1) with the file from cups_1.5.0-13 / testing. The printer works again.

I will investigate further if I have some spare time.
