Hi All,

I'm not sure if this is a problem specific to samba, or to cups, or to 
something else. I have a samba 3.0.7 server acting as a PDC, and print 
server for my wonderfully overcomplicated home network setup. The 
problem is when I send a PDF to the cups server to be printed, it only 
prints the first page then the cups mgmt interface will say that the job 
is completed. If it's a very large (+4mb) PDF, it will print the first 
page, or half of the frst page and then the CUPS mgmt inteface gives an 
error saying it was aborted. Could this merely be a memory issue? I 
believe there is only 256 megs in that machine.

If i'm asking the wrong people, please let me know and I'll go somewhere 
else, I've tried searching google, but the only results I find are 
printing with CUPS-PDF, which i also have working, and it works fine (I 
can even print pdf's to it and it will create another multiple page pdf)..

thanks in advance,
