lpd just exits when nothing is printed for a long period

Post by John Nagle » Mon Feb 23, 2004 5:58 pm

If we don't print anything for a day or so, "lpd" exits,
leaving its lock file present. There's no core dump file, and
no error messages. It just exits. We have to remove the lock
file and restart "lpd" before printing will work again.

Any ideas?

Check the syslog for clues. Also maybe run it
under gdb to see if it's being hit by an unexpected
signal.
