SUMMARY: NeWSprint 2.5 hanging

Date: Mon Jun 19 1995 - 11:41:51 CDT

Thanks for the answers! The concensus is to install patch 102113-03 to
keep np_filter from infinitely looping. This was noted in the README
for patch 101318-70 (jumbo kernel patch), which I didn't read before.

I'm in the process of getting 102113-03 from SUN now, and will post again
only if this doesn't fix the problem.

Other patches mentioned to try were:
        101317-12 (101317-11 is junk)
