Subject: [gentoo-user] cups doesn't work (pstoraster crash)
Date: Fri, 26 Jan 2007 15:29:33
Hello. uname -a is:
Linux 2.6.18-gentoo-r3 #21 Thu Dec 21 10:12:23 HKT
2006 sparc64 sun4u TI UltraSparc IIi (Sabre) GNU/Linux

cups version: 1.2.6, ghostscript-esp version: 8.15.3 (all are latest
stable on Gentoo Sparc). Printing anything to my inkjet printer gets
this error messag:
        /usr/libexec/cups/filter/pstoraster failed

The hardware is Okay (tested by 'cat text_file > /dev/usb/lp0' as well
as 'escputil -uc -r /dev/usb/lp0'). This printer also prints if it's
connected to Windows, so printer is okay too.

I checked cups error_log but I simply cannot find out a clue (this log
is too difficult to understand for my level of knowledge, it simply says
pstoraster crashed on signal 10.

Here is my error_log (LogLevel = debug): I catch this log by: first run
'tail -f /var/log/cups/error_log > cups_errorlog' and then print a test
job (standard cups test page)

Thanks a lot in advance!
