Description Orion Poplawski 2006-05-16 11:46:16 EDT
Description of problem:

Occaisionally a portmap/RPC based program like ypbind will take port 631 before
cups starts up.  cups then aborts with the following in the log:

E [04/May/2006:10:53:04 -0600] StartListening: Unable to bind socket for address
7f000001:631 - Address already in use.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

This is a known issue with portmap/bindresvport programs.  There are other bugs
about this issue, though I can't find them at the moment.  One fix is the start
cups before any portmap services, but I'm not sure this is possible.
