The original question:

>I am having problems with the system hanging while trying to print
>rasterfiles (screendumps) using NeWSprint.

The problem seems cured. The following are responses I received:

>Check your swap and tmp-space. The Newsprint software requires at least
>4MB free tmp-space. (Don't remember if it is in /tmp or /var/tmp. It's
>configurable during installation.)

>Have you installed the SunOS 4.1.1 NeWSprint patch? it's in

I did both of these things, but I do not know if one or the other, or both
