CUPS SIGSEGVs on Samba job submit
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:22 EST
Description of problem:
CUPS 1.3.4 dies suddenly on Fedora 8 with a SIGSEGV
when Samba 3.0.26a tries to submit a job.
The problem can be narrowed down to a single line of code
in CUPS 1.3.4 through 1.4-current SVN (available through the
CUPS site). It affects more than just Fedora 8, although this
is the system where it was discovered.
Please refer to CUPS STR #2599 and #2600 for more details.
STR #2600 contains details for commenting out the offending
line of code to work around the issue temporarily.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Attempt remote printing from another system through any Samba
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the configuration specified in CUPS problem report
2. Print to any defined Samba printer from another system.
3. Make sure the job attempts to spool.
4. Watch for a SIGSEGV in dmesg.
dmesg: cupsd: segfault at 00000004 eip 0045e153 esp bfb67064 error 4
