Dear Samba people,

I have a Solaris 8 running samba 2.2.1a.
I've had printing running on this version
of samba under solaris 7; no problems.

Under Solaris 8, unless /var/spool/lp/tmp
has permissions "755" win95 and win98
print jobs don't print.  The print files
simply stay in the samba directory under
/var/spool/lp/tmp whiched I've named
memprt01.  Permissions on that directory
(memprt01) are "1777", where the 
sticky bit is turned on.  The files
never leave memprt01 and don't ever
print.  win2000 has no problem, you
can put the files there and then it
copies the files over to the print

The file permissions on /var/spool/lp/tmp
are changed each time lpshut and
lpsched are run.  This behavior of
these programs (lpshut and lpsched)
has been going on since Solaris 2.6.

Has anyone ever ran into this problem?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.
