Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

The whole business about needing to import PPDs into foomatic before they can be
used is gone in rawhide.

Comment 3 George Liu 2006-07-11 17:51:45 UTC
Yes, verified the functionality of creating print queue with customized PPD
files in FC6 test 1.
This bug should stay as closed.
