Description Todd 2015-08-26 03:28:34 EDT
Hi All,

I am coming from the community: Scientific Linux 7.1.

# yum whatprovides cups-lpd
Loaded plugins: langpacks
1:cups-lpd-1.6.3-17.el7.x86_64 : CUPS printing system - lpd emulation
Repo        : sl

Bug #1:

# rpm -qa cups-lpd

is missing the dependency: 

# rpm -qa xinetd

You can't use cups-lpd without it.

Bug #2:
the installer of cups-lpd forgets to add the following entry into /etc/xinetd.d

$ more cups-lpd

# default: off
# description: Allow applications using the legacy lpd protocol to communicate w
ith CUPS
service printer
	disable = no
	socket_type = stream
	protocol = tcp
	wait = no
	user = lp
	server = /usr/lib/cups/daemon/cups-lpd

Many thanks,

We converted cups-lpd xinetd service to systemd, see bug #884641 for more details.
Comment 4 Todd 2015-08-26 18:42:42 EDT
Hi Jiri,

Would you consider adding these two command to the post install script?

# systemctl enable cups-lpd.socket
# systemctl start cups-lpd.socket

Many thanks,

No, sorry.
We'd need an exception for this and I'm not sure we really need it.

In that case, how about putting something in the cup-lpd man page so folks won't have to rely on the charity of others to figure out how to start the buzzard?
