Description of problem:
After "service restart cups" I get cupsd: Child exited with status
98! in /var/log/messages and cupsd does not start.
This used to work with same cupsd.conf before updating to kernel-
2.4.22-1.2129.nptl. Commenting out the line "Port 631" in cupsd.conf
resolves the problems.
Interesting that this problem started after kernel update
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. service restart cups
Actual Results: cupsd start fails
Expected Results: cupsd should be running
The redhat-config-printer tool doesn't put 'Port 631' in the
configuration file, so I think you put that there yourself? In which
case, I hope you removed redhat-config-printer so that it didn't add
Listen lines of its own?
Without seeing /etc/cups/cupsd.conf it's impossible to tell what's up
really. Could you attach it please?

Current working cupsd.conf with offending "Port 631" commented out
My current working cupsd.cond with offending "Port 631" directive commented out
on line 406.
There is no bug here: you can't say 'Port 631' *and* 'Listen ...:631'.
