#5988 closed bug (fixed)

Print Server crashes.

Reported by: xeon3d Owned by: ithamar
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Printing Version: R1/alpha2
Keywords: jetdirect crash Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: x86



Print Server crashes if it doesn't find an installed JetDirect Printer.

Story: I tried to install an HP printer which I expected that was connected to the network. Added it as a HP JetDirect and when it asked me what the IP address was and I went to check I found out that it actually wasn't connected at all to the network so I cancelled the dialog and the print server crashed.

After it, at each bootup or if I opened the printers preflet, it would ask me again for the IP or Name and after each cancel, the print server would crash.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Boot up Alpha 2
  • Open Printers Preflet
  • Add a JetDirect Printer
  • Cancel the following dialog
  • *PROFIT*

The problem is that the spool file will stay in the printer directory, and therefore everytime the print_server starts it'll try to print the file, i.e. it doesn't get properly cancelled on your 'Cancel'....

The crash however should not happen, I guess some error handling is either missing or wrong.

Sorry Ithamar, didn't notice that you were working on it too.

no worries, was just looking at it, didn't quite "work" on it yet. Was planning it as a weekend activity :)

Nice work anyway!
