Is there any difference in printing in Red Hat 7.1. I mean to be specific in the spooling. Thanks in advance.

I am not sure if this change occurred in 7.0 or 7.1, but the /etc/printcap file is now a dynamic file it seems. You can't edit it directly. There is a /etc/printcap.local file that you can edit and it is automatically included in /etc/printcap when the LPD is started.

I have yet to really figure it out myself.. at least how to make my printers at work available. They worked fine in v6.2 but now they don't work. Of course.. it could be because of changes on our network that were made as well.
