I found Jerry's patches for 2.2.5 Wednesday, recompiled 2.2.5 with the
patches and reinstalled today.  I still had problems but I followed the
Samba HowTo pdf  and tried setting the 'default devmode = yes' in my
smb.conf and bingo, it appears to work.  My real test will be later
today when all the staff and faculty are in banging away but so far so

I have all HP printers and am using the HP drivers.  Tickling the
printers didn't work for me but defaulting the devmode did.  I think it
just depends on the printers/drivers that you have.  Good luck.

Patches can be found here:


p.s. Thanks Jerry for the patches :)
