Description Gerry Tool 2005-04-13 23:11:46 EDT
Description of problem:Application turboprint 1.91-2 from turboprint.de does not
work with FC4Tx - it has worked with all former RHL and FC versions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install turboprint 1.91-2 from rpm
2.Setup turboprint for a networked LPD print server
3.Try to print a test page or print from an app.
Actual results: No printing occurs.  Printer interface believes all is well -
both turboprint setup and localhost:631 interfaces.  Defined printer shows up in
printer dialogs in apps such as gedit.  Printing appears to work, but nothing
ever happens at the printer.

Expected results: Page should print

Additional info: Printing is working for a Samsung ML-1750 laser printer
attached to a second port on the networked LPD print server.  Turboprint defined
printers identical to this setup work in FC3, FC2, ubuntu 5.04, suse9.2 and
several other distros I've tried.

I have reported this bug to turboprint.de also.
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2005-04-14 05:00:25 EDT
If you find that the cause is a CUPS bug, please re-open.
Comment 2 Gerry Tool 2005-04-22 23:38:27 EDT
It occurred to me that SELinux might be involved.  I disabled SELinux, and the
Canon printer prints via Turbolinux.  I reenabled, and left it set to Permissive
and it still prints.  I set it to Enforce, and it does not print.

So, it appears that SELinux set to Enforce will not allow Turboprint/Canon
printer to print, whereas set to Permissive does.

I do not understand SELinux well enough to know if there is some parameter in
SELinux that I can change to allow Enforce to work along with Turboprint.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2005-04-25 11:00:54 EDT
You should see AVC messages in you log files that will tell us what SELinux is
denying.  Please attach the AVC messages.

Comment 4 Gerry Tool 2005-04-25 20:01:44 EDT
I would like to do that, but evidently do not know where to look.  If I do a
grep AVC * 
in the /var/log directory, I get nothing.

Also, what condition do you want set in the SELinux tab in Security Level
Configuration when I do this?  Printing succeeds if SELinux is Enabled, but
Enforcing is set to Permissive; it fails if Enforcing is set to Enforcing.

There was no /var/log/audit/auditd.log file, so this attachment is the result
of grep avc /var/log/audit/audit.log
Comment 8 Daniel Walsh 2005-04-26 13:20:16 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-*-1.23.13-3
Comment 9 Gerry Tool 2005-04-27 21:22:25 EDT
I now have this installed:

[root@gst-fc4t2 ~]# rpm -q selinux-policy-targeted

and I still must have SELinux Enforcing Current: Permissive to print.

If I set it to SELinux Enforcing Current : Enforcing,
the print job completes according to Document print status, but nothing prints.

I will again attach the files you previously requested.

Comment 12 Gerry Tool 2005-05-03 20:49:12 EDT
This bug now appears to be fixed with:
[root@gst-fc4t2 ~]# rpm -q selinux-policy-targeted

I can now print via a turboprint-defined printer with SELinux set to enforcing.

Thanks for the bug fix.
