1.4.1.1 Upgrade Bugs

The upgrade installed flawlessly.  I read about some issues on #pcbsd (freenode IRC) about printing not being fixed and pbi upgrade issues.  The upgrade reportedly "... includes an update to the CUPS 1.3.3 package, as well as other fixes / improvements to printing support. 

Printing:
When I tried to return my HP Laserjet 4 from lpd to CUPS, I could print the test page (which, however, says it is using Cups v1.1.x) and I can print from Open Office and web browsers.  I cannot print from Adobe Acrobat Reader.


PBI.  The  PBI update manager successfully scans the installed pbi's and reports that an upgrade to Firefox is available.  It fetches the upgrade PBI.  However, when you attempt to launch the PBI, the task bar icon twirls for a while and then disappears into nothingness.

Hi Ian,

The problem is that Adobe Reader is a Linux binary, I think, so it's  
trying to use Linux lpr. If you point it to the right lpr, it should  
work fine.
I remember having this problem when we migrated the office over to PC- 
BSD, but I neglected to document it as I fixed it :-(

best,
-matt

1.4.1.1 Upgrade Bugs (supplemental info)

I am supplementing the printing section of my earlier report.

My prior report noted my experience when printing a test page which showed it was using CUPS 1.1.x, I had accessed the printer control panel via the GUI method of Start->Settings->Peripherals->Printers.

The update is that when I accessed the printer via http://localhost:631, it came up as CUPS 1.3.3, and the test page printout was consistent because it reported it was using CUPS v 1.3.x.

Details:
HP LaserJet 4 Plus
HP JetDirect card
networked printer on 192.168.2.104
URI= socket://192.168.2.104
HP LaserJet 4 Plus Foomatic/hpijs driver


IMPORTANT NOTE:  Until I manually powered off the printer and turned it back on, I was getting an error which said, "Not allowed to print".

The good news is that after accessing and configuring via http://localhost:631, and recycling the printer off and on, I was able to print to Adobe Reader.

The bad news is that the HP Device Manager found in Start -> Utilities does not work.

PCBSD 1.4.1.1 won't update on-line. It quits after 87% of the file download.

PCBSD 1.4.1.1 won't update on-line. It quits after 87% of the file download.

My /tmp directory had 700MB to play with - shouldn't that be enough for a 300MB patch?

I then tried to symlink /tmp to /var/tmp which is on its own much larger partition, but it wouldn't work - guess you can't symlink two existing directories.

Then tried to temporarily delete /tmp to recreate it with  ln -s /var/tmp /tmp  so that anything written to /tmp would actually get written to /var/tmp.

Tried to delete or rename /tmp but no go. Even after emptying /tmp it won't let me delete it - says "device busy".  It won't let me rename it either, since it's a mount point.

I then gave up and manually updated by downloading the .pbi to my home directory which is on /usr/home and is huge, and executed the .pbi from there.

Anyone have a clue why 700MB isn't enough room, or at least know how to symlink existing directories?

Tnx, Jeff

Re: PCBSD 1.4.1.1 won't update on-line. It quits after 87% of the file download.


Jeff,

By default /tmp is using tmpfs, and you should be able to increase the 
space for it by editing rc.conf and looking for this:

tmpmfs="YES"
tmpsize="800m"
tmpmfs_flags="-S"

As for the actual issue with space, thats weird, because when the 
updater runs, it uses "fetch" to download the file to /PCBSD/tmp/ by 
default. In this case, it may be running out of room on "/" possibly. 
You could try linking /PCBSD/tmp to /usr/pcbsdtmp or some other 
directory with more room, and see if that works :)
