iprint manager defunct...

Hello Everyone,

We are having the defunct print manager issue described in Patch-11312
(which of course we have not installed yet) but we are not able to
unload this services at all (even with a kill -9 or fuser -kms
/filesystem). Has anyone figured out how to unload this? BTW, there is
no PID file...

Thanks!

If kill -9 doens't work, then then the process is most likely blocked on
I/O and this could point to filesystem issues. Anything in
/var/log/messages?

A reboot will most likely clear it, but could leave the filesystem in a
bit of a state.

Hey Mark,

Sorry for my late reply... Yes, you were right, the file system that
iprint resides on became corrupt... We have had way too many problems
with reiserfs and were going to rebuild our servers with ext3...

ThankS!

Let me know how you get on with that pls. I always use reiser but I have
also seen a few issues. Might make the change on the next server I do...
