I updated my LPRng rpm using the up2date utility.  Now when I print I get
the following error:
 lpr: error while loading shared libraries: lpr: undefined
symbol: stat

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. lpr {filename}
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  lpr: error while loading shared libraries: lpr: undefined
symbol: stat

Expected Results:  a printed page.

The rpm version up2date loaded is 3.6.24-2

I am glad someone else is having the same problem.  It lets me know that I don't
have to spend a whole lot more time trying to resolve it.

After an upgrade yesterday, I can no longer print.  I get the same error.  I
would try to find the error in source/Makefile, but I have a deadline from a
paying customer.  Let me know what you guys find.

Just in case it matters, this is what is different on my machine.  I am running
Kernel 2.2.18 with SMP (2 X 700 Mhz).

I was able to get past this by downloading the src rpm and rebuilding to my
shared libs.  This appears to be a glibc symbol change.  I went to a 7.0 system
that had not be upgraded, and ran strace on loading of the lpd and compared it
to the strace of my non-working system.  It craps out where the lpd is trying to
stat( /etc/lpd.conf ).  So I figured there must be a slight symbol change in the
glibc stuff.  I downloaded the srpm for LPRng and did a:
rpm --rebuild LPRng*.rpm
and then,
rpm -U --force LPRng*.rpm of the generated binary rpm.

Then everything works fine. (BTW, my glibc is 2.2-12)
