Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 191950
cups does not start because another program has taken port 631
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
Description of problem:
Occaisionally a portmap/RPC based program like ypbind will take port 631 before
cups starts up. cups then aborts with the following in the log:
E [04/May/2006:10:53:04 -0600] StartListening: Unable to bind socket for address
7f000001:631 - Address already in use.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is a known issue with portmap/bindresvport programs. There are other bugs
about this issue, though I can't find them at the moment. One fix is the start
cups before any portmap services, but I'm not sure this is possible.
