Comment 2 Neal Becker 2004-10-08 13:02:54 UTC
Problem was there was more than one line saying port 631 in 
Could give a little more informative error message. 

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2004-10-08 13:34:23 UTC
I'm more interested in how it got that way in the first place. :-)

Comment 4 Neal Becker 2004-10-08 13:36:23 UTC
I added the port 631 by merging cupsd.conf with cupsd.conf.rpmnew 

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2004-10-08 13:38:09 UTC
Oh, okay.  Just wanted to be sure it wasn't a system-config-printer bug.

Comment 6 Trevor Cordes 2004-11-28 13:51:43 UTC
I just ran into this also after a FC1->FC2->FC3 upgrade.  I probably
merged the lines in manually, but I don't remember.  It appears you
can't have both a "Port 631" and "Listen" line in the
same conf file.  This kind of makes sense but it had me stumped for a
while and bugzilla and google searches took a while to reveal
something useful (this bug report).

Perhaps cups should ignore duplicate port specifications or provide a
better error message?

Debugging this problem was nearly impossible as netstat and lsof would
not report 631 as being taken.  I guess it might have if I caught it
at exactly the right moment while cupsd was starting.  My initial
though was another program was hogging 631 and that was not the case.
