Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 148033
Reboot hangs up on cups if kernel is added to update list when updating.
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:16:53 EST
Description of problem:
Aquired FC3 DVD from Issue 50, Jan 2005, Linux Magazine,
Comes with kernel 2.6 and updating works well unless you add the
kernel update to the list.
Causes it to stop loading the reboot, when the loading gets to cups.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
It is a kernel up2date
I believe the cups hang-up is reproducible by running up2date and then
rebooting, while having no printer connected to a home desktop computer.
(eMachine T2792, 2.70GHz Intel Celeron, 256MB DDR)
Additionally, when it hangs up, if you control+alt-delete several
times, it will pass cups and continue till it gets to swap and hang-up
Then if you control+alt+delete again, it causes a long scroll of
memory failures, ending with ram out of memory... and no way to shut
down other than kill switch or turning off power source.
...but rebooting the pre-upgrade older kernel works fine with no probs.
Please note that its not just up2date it is also YUM or any other way
of aquiring the packages.
I think this is the same bug as 144726.
I get this problem as well - working around by disabling cups on every
There's a suggested fix at
but this doesn't seem to help me - can anyone else get it to work?
