Description Steve Wardell 2006-04-17 12:45:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Last night I was having problems printing and found the following in the error log:
E [17/Apr/2006:01:33:03 -0400] StartBrowsing: Unable to bind broadcast socket -
Address already in use.

It seems that rpc.statd had bound to udp port 631. As 631 is the port cups uses,
cups was unable to start up.

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

How reproducible:
Not sure but the situation is pretty straight forward about what's happening.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Startup system
2. If rpc.statd does show in a netstat -anp as having bound to port 631, reboot
until it takes port 631
3. Start up cups
Actual results:
Cups gives the error message:
E [17/Apr/2006:01:33:03 -0400] StartBrowsing: Unable to bind broadcast socket -
Address already in use.

Expected results:
Cups would start up correctly as rpc.statd would not bind to port 631.

Additional info:
As a workaround, on a reboot after the erorr, rpc.statd bound to port 637 and
all was fine. rpc.statd should not bind to port 631.
