User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031013

Description of problem:
Whenever I upgrade to the latest beta release, /etc/cups/mimes.types is replaced
with a default.  mime.convs is not changed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Modify /etc/cups/mime.types
2. Update with latest cds

Actual Results:  mime.types is replaced with what appears to be a default version.

Expected Results:  user changes should remain.  

Additional info:

I uncomment the line
# application/octet-stream
to allow printing from a windows client.  

A similar line in mime.convs is not changes  
application/octet-stream        application/vnd.cups-raw        0 

It is left uncommented.

This line is changed by redhat-config-printer.  You need to specify that the
queue is a raw queue in the redhat-config-printer tool.
Comment 2 Clifford Snow 2003-10-17 14:50:23 EDT
Thanks - I kept looking for the Raw Queue in the tab Queue Type.  Then I found
that if selected the generic print driver instead of HP I could select Raw Print

Seems to me that the instructions for redhat-config-printer should be updated to
show how to do this.  It didn't seem intuitive to me.
