Description Seth Vidal 2001-02-14 22:20:09 UTC
printconf 0.0-29  - from rawhide (after the release of fisher)

I add a printer with the following characteristics

Name: 107A-LD
Type: HP Laserjet 4000
Connection: jetdirect
      ip: hp4ktn1.phy.duke.edu (its firewalled so I don't care :)
      port: 9100
Postscript printer driver selected
Click OK

I get the following errors on the console:

** CRITICAL **: file alchemist.c: line 3226 (AdmList_addChild): assertion
`_adm_valid_name(name)' failed.
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/libglade.py", line 28, in __call__
    ret = apply(self.func, a)
  File "/usr/sbin/printconf-gui", line 859, in handle_new_button
    queue = new_queue(name)
  File "/usr/sbin/printconf-gui", line 128, in new_queue
    queue = dynamic_ctx.getDataByPath('/' + namespace +
'/print_queues').addChild(Alchemist.Data.ADM_TYPE_LIST, name)
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/Alchemist.py", line 134, in
Alchemist.ListError: addChild failed

if I change the name of the printer from 107A-LD to printer it works just

I know lprng allows names with -'s in them - does printconf?

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.

Comment 2 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-02-20 05:03:54 UTC
It didn't support '-' in one version, it does now.

Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2001-02-20 14:34:28 UTC
I looked in the rawhide dir on ftp.redhat.com and I didn't see any updated
packages. Is there anyway I can get the "rawhide" that you're speaking of so I
can find out if this is completely fixed?
