Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3217
bug in "RS" capability in lpd
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
Attempts to print to printers with the "rs" capability
turned on result in a cryptic error message that the job
could not be printed, with no explanation as to why.
The cause is a bug in printit() in lpd/printjob.c. If the
"rs" capability is turned on, the code exits case 'P' in
pass 1 without ever setting euser to something reasonable.
This confuses later code that thinks it has been set.
I will post a fix once a bug number has been assigned.
