Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189168
rc.sysinit tries to rm /var/run/cups, but /var/run/cups/certs is a directory
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:59:26 EDT
Description of problem:
Each boot, I get a message about 'unable to remove /var/run/cups'. Appears to
come from rc.sysinit's effort to clean out /var/run.
Cups seems to use /var/run/cups/certs/0 on my system, so the rm fails.
Should there be a special case in the 'Clean up /var' code for '*/cups)'?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I can confirm this with initscripts-8.31.1-1

Should be fixed in 8.34-1.
I don't know if you want this in a seperate bug. But I just saw this in the
daily Rawhide Changelog mails and noticed that this was fixed with a special
case for cups.
I don't think a special case is the right solution. If it is please add a
special case for tiger. If you install tiger from FE it will create:
Which causes the same problem.
Separate bug. I wonder if we need to have apps clean up their own. Or just

This resurfaced, due to recent cups updates, in FC5 and it was
reported as bug 194557. The later one was closed as a duplicate.
This indeed is fixed in the current rawhide but initscripts-8.31.4-1,
which is the most recent in testing for FC5 updates, is still missing
a corresponding cups 'case "$afile" in ...' entry.
