Description of problem:
cupsd process crashes after making any changes in
system-config-printer and clicking "Apply"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-printer-0.6.112-1 and cups-1.1.21-1.rc2.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure cupsd is already running
2. bring up system-config-printer
3. make any change to an existing printer
4. click "Apply"

Actual Results:  cupsd process disappears

Expected Results:  cupsd restarted fine

Additional info:

Nothing interesting in /var/log/cups/error_log.
"/etc/init.d/cups start" put things back in order

Please try with cups-1.1.21-3.  Thanks.

Comment 2 Nader Khalid Alzain 2004-09-30 13:02:17 UTC
I installed cups-1.1.21-3, but without change in behavior.
I tried a different scenario:
1. Manually stop cupsd
2. Bring up system-config-printer and press "Apply"
The result is that cupsd now starts up fine!
I feel it is a simple issue with the code behind "Apply" button not
properly handling stopping/starting/restarting sequences. This bug
does not happen in system-config-printer-0.6.98-1.
I've downgraded priority to normal since I don't show any evidence of
cups crashing.

What does /sbin/chkconfig --list cups say?

Are there jobs in the queue at the point you press "Apply"?

Comment 4 Nader Khalid Alzain 2004-09-30 13:19:46 UTC
[nelzein@envoy ~]$ /sbin/chkconfig --list cups
cups            0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
No jobs running in any of the test cases.

I see this here now.  cupsd is segfaulting shortly after getting the

Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2004-10-04 13:53:21 UTC
Please try cups-1.1.21-5.

Comment 7 Nader Khalid Alzain 2004-10-05 14:42:56 UTC
I have installed cups-1.1.21-5 and tested successfully.
system-config-printer works fine, and the bug can be closed.
Thank you!
