printconf retches errors on certain types of printer creation
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
printconf 0.0-29 - from rawhide (after the release of fisher)
I add a printer with the following characteristics
Type: HP Laserjet 4000
ip: hp4ktn1.phy.duke.edu (its firewalled so I don't care :)
Postscript printer driver selected
I get the following errors on the console:
** CRITICAL **: file alchemist.c: line 3226 (AdmList_addChild): assertion
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/libglade.py", line 28, in __call__

File "/usr/sbin/printconf-gui", line 859, in handle_new_button
queue = new_queue(name)

queue = dynamic_ctx.getDataByPath('/' + namespace +
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.
It didn't support '-' in one version, it does now.
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?
