Thanks for the suggestion; but its not the printer, as I’ve used it
in-between booting to QNX in other OS’s without problems. Anyway, I tend to
pull the plug when I power down at night so I would already have followed
your suggestion by default, without result. The only other OS I’ve had
problems printing with the HP4L is BeOS.
When I boot into QNX next I’ll, once again, check the printer set-up. Can’t
say anything struck me as problematic, but then what do I know.
Perhaps, as I had to do with BeOS, I could use some other method of
printing. Is Ghostscript, or similar, available for QNX Rtp?

Well first of all, find out where the data is coming from. Is it
possible that non-volatile ram in the printer is remembering?
Make sure you pull the plug on the HP for a while in case it
keeps the buffer that way. The off switch is not necessarily
Once you quiet the printer down, I’d take a close look at your
printer setup to make sure all is setup correctly. Finally,
I’d try testing some very simple text files.

Perhaps someone can help with a print problem I have under QNX RtP 6.1.
I have a Hewlett Packard LaserJet 4L printer and my attempt to print
resulted in one page of blurry print and then a continuous stream of

Not content with denuding my stock of paper, and not printing a four
document, it tries to do so at every boot. Unless I cancel the print
every time I boot, it precedes to stream blank paper. If I look in the
jobs pending there is nothing.
What’s to be done?
