Core dumps with direct and spooled printers under SCO
If a printer is set up as both a spooled printer and a direct printer, there is a possibility of getting a core dump with the following scenario:
OPEN the direct printer on one channel with one session of BBx. OPEN the spooled printer on another channel with another session of BBx. PRINT a job on the spooled printer. Now try to print with the workstation with the printer OPENed direct. You'll get a core dump.
The fix is a tunable security kernal parameter. It is called secstopio and needs to be set for 0, which is NO. You can test this by doing the following as root:
./configure -y secstopio
If it returns a 1, it needs changed to 0 and the kernel needs relinked.
