Description Jason Straw 2004-02-11 16:20:06 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
I have a network of 24 computers in a University Lab, which all print
through another instance of CUPS on a server.  About one of these
computers a day will stop printing. 

Restarting CUPS on the lab workstation does solve the problem, but
does not keep it from happening again.

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

How reproducible:
Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
I have not figured out how to forcibly reproduce the error, but it
reoccurs every once in a while.

Apply the test updates for redhat-config-printer:


Does the problem still occur after doing that?

Comment 2 David Anderson 2004-02-27 10:16:38 UTC
Same problem for me - random crashes which leave nothing in the 
logs. However this is with Red Hat 9. I'm compiling the Fedora RPM 
(without DBUS) to see if the problem goes away with this. 

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2004-02-27 10:21:47 UTC
David: if there is nothing in the logs, it is a *different* problem.

Or do you see the 'Unable to bind socket' message?

Comment 4 David Anderson 2004-02-27 10:25:34 UTC
Sorry - you're right, different problem. It just dies, and logs 
nothing in /var/log/cups/* or /var/log/messages. No pattern to it as 
far as I can see. All clients are using CUPS or Adobe postscript 
I won't bother to file a new bug if the Fedora RPM works. 

Comment 5 Marius Andreiana 2005-08-20 07:59:46 UTC
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "CURRENTRELEASE", however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
Core release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.

Thanks in advance.
