Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 249044
Please change initscript start level
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:10 EST
Description of problem:
CUPS now needs to after avahi, but still needs to be before haldaemon.
Unfortunately both avahi and haldaemon start at level 98. :-)
For the moment I've set cups to start at level 98 as well, and this should work
just because it is alphabetically where it needs to be, but it would be nicer if
there was a numeric space for it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I changed this in the init scripts shipped upstream now (r1501). I will shortly
prepare an updated package for fedora.
Tim, could you elaborate a little why cups needs to be started before hal? I
told the Debian people about this bug and they're now eager to learn why this
order has to assured?
Sure. The reason is that once hal has started, HAL callouts for connected
printers will be called. This causes the hal-cups-utils package to start adding
printers to CUPS (if not already present). The hal_lpadmin program in
hal-cups-utils requires cupsd to be running at that point.
Fixed in Rawhide.
Now the start level is 97; but it still doesn't give me enough room to put CUPS
in between avahi-daemon and haldaemon without relying on alphabetic ordering.
Please make it at most 96, so that I can put CUPS at 97 (between avahi-daemon
and haldaemon which is at 98).
