Red Hat Vs Cent OS

Posted 02-15-2012 at 01:24 PM by janiali
Updated 09-12-2013 at 03:40 AM by janiali (match category)

Dear All , Just to share you a small facts sheet where you could find the better selection while installing the OS at your Server.


I recommend CentOS over any other distribution. Its very stable and based on our extensive testing outperforms all the other versions of RH distro out there. You can't go wrong with CentOS.

inverse graphics objects printing (with text printing okay)

Posted 02-13-2012 at 04:15 AM by Yury_T

For those of you who's getting inverse (black in place of white and vice versa) graphics objects in your printouts in an environment similar to "out-of-the-box" slackware 13.37 on 64-bit platform (so, ghostscript 9.00):

Just upgrade ghostscript to 9.02. The problem is the GS previos version's pstoraster.

Many thanks to Michael R. Sweet for his CUPS raster viewer (http://www.easysw.com/~mike/rasterview/) which enabled me to pinpoint the problem quickly!
