Description of problem:
Using the menu Sytem Settings > Printing opens a dialog to enter the
root password. Once the password is entered, nothing further happens.
Entering system-config-printer on a command line does open the printer
configuration tool and allows the printer to be setup. However it
failed to print a test page. (Separate bugzilla # 120003)

Actual Results: No printer configuration dialog appears
Expected Results: Printer setup dialog should appear and allow
Command line system-config-printer does function to open a printer
Test 2 system completely up2date with development packages 4/4/04.
Works for me. Need more details: is this enforcing mode? Does
'setenforce 0' help? What does 'id -Z' say in a terminal? Etc..
Especially: what precise *versions* are you using? Need rpm -q output
before we can even say we're looking at the same packages.
Well it works for me now, also.
[root@gstpc gerry]# rpm -q system-config-printer
I tried it with SELINUX=enforcing and permissive. No difference. At
the time I had the problem, I had installed all the latest updates,
but had not rebooted. On the next reboot I got a kernel panic because
/etc/security/selinux/policy.16 was misnamed to policy. I don't know
if that had any bearing or not.
