I've been using the Linux distribution Gentoo for a long while now and I've always enjoyed (and in spite of what I read on some web sites, I found it the most performant distribution). Packages are installed by compiling sources and thus it might take quite a long time to set up or upgrade a system, but then it's quite easy to maintain.
For some days I've been struggling with Cups when I was trying to install a Xerox printer, a Phaser 4500 DT (by using the drivers found on their website): everything is installed fine but when I tried to print something, nothing happened :-(
By taking a look at the log /var/log/cups/error_log, I found this line:
PID 7265 stopped with status 22By searching on Google I didn't find much, but someone mentioned a similar problem due to missing footmatic packages...
Well, installing foomatic with
emerge foomaticsolved everything :-)
I hope this avoids some headache to other facing the same problem!
