Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1257051
cups-lpd man page incomplete
Last modified: 2016-11-04 02:45:49 EDT
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
# rpm -qa cups-lpd
is missing the dependency:
# rpm -qa xinetd
You can't use cups-lpd without it.
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
disable = no
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = lp
server = /usr/lib/cups/daemon/cups-lpd
We converted cups-lpd xinetd service to systemd, see bug #884641 for more details.
Would you consider adding these two command to the post install script?
# systemctl enable cups-lpd.socket
# systemctl start cups-lpd.socket
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?
