SUMMARY: Problem with burst page on 4.1.3_U1 via JetAdmin

Original question:-

> I'm running Jetadmin (SUNd450.tar) on 4.1.3_U1 on a 4/330, an old
> customer machine, in order to access a networked printer.
> I wanted to disable the burst page so added :sh: to the printcap
> entry. The burst header page is no longer printed but now the print
> has lost carriage-return. Remove the sh entry and the burst page
> is back + the file prints correctly.
> 101434-03 lpd patch is applied. SUNd450.tar is the latest Jetadmin
> for Sol1. Haven't found anything yet in usenet searches, Sunsolve,
> Sun managers archives etc.
> Any ideas?

Well, my original question wasn't entirely clear. I _could_ enable/disable
the burst page, the problem really was that the printer seemed to lose
idea of CR/LF after disabling the burst page. The printer is an HP 2100M
series, which isn't in the list supported by the Sol1 version of Jetadmin.
Solution was (appears to be) to choose a different printer setting other than
'none of the above', in this case HP Laserjet 4/4M.

Possibly Fabrice Guerini <> was correct in sending:-

> Looks like the burst page contained a prologue that configured your
> PostScript printer correctly. See if you can get a proper prologue file, or
> make your burst page blank (with no showpage command), still keeping the
> prologue.
