Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2006-04-18 09:19:16 UTC
Hmm, I don't see that error here.  Could you please show me

1. the SELinux error message ('audit' or 'avc' with lots of technical bits in
it) from /var/log/messages, and
2. the CUPS error from /var/log/cups/error_log

when you get the server-error-internal-error?

Thanks.

THere is no 'avc' or 'audit' errors,only /var/log/cups/error-log:-

D [20/Apr/2006:09:40:37 +1000] ReadClient: 8 POST /admin/ HTTP/1.1

I belive the 'permission denied' is selinux as shown by 'setenforce 0' allowing 
me to change the cups config in http://localhost:631/[admin] [printers].

Please show me what this command says, as root:

ls -Zd /etc/cups/ppd

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2006-04-21 08:21:52 UTC
What about 'ls -Zd /var/spool/cups'?

Also, do you have the 'audit' package installed?  I'm trying to work out why we
can't see the SELinux deny message.

Yesterday (21-04-06 1000hr UTC) I ran "/sbin/fixfiles relabel" and it fixed one
or two issues I had when running my machine this a.m including this bug so I
have no problems accessing 'localhost:631/admin'and configuring cups.
