Hi everybody,

I've got a question on using the printing library which comes as a
contributed package to the GRX library.
It looks like when this printing library is used it invalidates the current
device driver of the GRX and creates a new "memory" driver to do printing.
The simple program to test printing that comes with the library works OK,
since there are no other programs using GRX at that moment, but if you try
to invoke printing routines from a GUI environment residing on GRX it
immediately crashes (I use MGUI with VESA driver, but I think any other GUI
would behave similarly, when its primary driver is gone).
Is there a way to have multiple device drivers in GRX simultaneously , so
using one does not affect others?

Thanks for any advices.
