Description Tom London 2006-04-17 16:25:46 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):

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.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2006-05-24 11:53:36 EDT
Separate bug. I wonder if we need to have apps clean up their own. Or just
move/reimplement find.

Comment 9 Michal Jaegermann 2006-07-06 15:27:16 EDT
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.
