Description Remco Treffkorn 2005-04-25 16:03:29 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux) KHTML/3.4.0 (like Gecko)

Description of problem:
The system crashes hard on cupsd start. No messages are printed to any logs. 
The network stack is dead too, no pings. 
There is absolutely no indication that something is going wrong, except the 
system is dead. No error messages, no logs. Straceing cupsd -f did not tell me 
anything either. No obvious indication of anything going wrong. 
This is on an old Compaq Presario laptop. The same software works fine on 
another intel box. If booting with 2.6.9 everything works without a problem. 
The problem here is not the crash, but the fact that there is not any hint of 
a problem. Running strace on cupsd did not tell me a lot. Cupsd seems to exec 
other stuff, though. The problem could be with a child. 
Any idea about how to instrument this, so I can find out what causes this?  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cups-1.1.22-0.rc1.8.5 kernel-2.6.11-1.14_FC3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with cups service on, system stops on cupsd start 
2. Boot without cups service. Start cupsd manually, system dies. 

Actual Results:  The system is dead. Absolutely no log, or other output before the crash. 
System does not even respond to pings any more. 

Additional info:

I don't see the problem on any machine, but this particular Compaq laptop. 
But on this one it is 100% reproducible. Frustrating really.
