Description Olivier Baudron 2000-07-25 19:36:50 EDT
At boot time, lpd outputs warning message:

Starting lpd: Warning - owner/group of '/var/run/lpd.printer' are 0/7, not
Warning -   changing ownership '/var/run/lpd.printer' to 4/7
Warning -   changing ownership '/var/run/lpd.printer' to 4/7

This is because, in /etc/rc.d/init.d/lpd, 'checkpc -f' does not find the
file /var/run/lpd.printer. So it creates one but with wrong permission.

It's a bogus error message -- checkpc complains that the lock file is
not writable even when it doesn't exist.  Fixed in LPRng-3.6.21-8,
appearing soon in Raw Hide.
