Description of problem:
After a reboot, cupsd would not start. /var/log/cups/error_log said socket address already in use. lsof showed ypbind listening on ipp port 631.
service ypbind stop
service ypbind start
service cups start
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The bug is that ypserv listens on a well-known port.
Meant to say ypserv-2.8-6
I think this bug can be fixed in the ypserv rpm, so that ypserv starts after
cupsd, and any other root daemon. AFAIK, ypserv binds INADDR_ANY, to any
available privileged port.
