Description Jonathan Kamens 2002-01-29 10:17:15 EST
A default installation of cups creates the files /etc/cups/certs/0 and
/etc/cups/ppds.dat, but the cups RPM doesn't know that these files are owned by
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2002-10-19 17:40:56 EDT
Also /etc/cups/lpoptions.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-08-07 21:52:48 EDT
'Red Hat Raw Hide' refers to the development tree for Red Hat Linux.
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues were not resolved in a more
timely manner. However, we do want to make sure that important 
don't slip through the cracks. If these issues are still present
in a current release, such as Fedora Core 5, please move these
bugs to that product and version. Note that any remaining Red Hat
Raw Hide bugs will be closed as 'CANTFIX' on September 30, 2006.
Thanks again for your help.

I can't figure out if this is still a problem.  I have /etc/cups/ppds.dat and
/etc/cups/lpoptions on my hard disk, but I don't know if they're simply left
over from a previous CUPS version and wouldn't be created if I reinstalled CUPS
from scratch now (a test I'm not willing to do because I don't want to blow away
my CUPS configuration).  I don't have /etc/cups/certs/0.  Any insights/
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2006-09-07 08:29:23 EDT
/etc/cups/certs moved to /var/run/cups/certs.
/etc/cups/ppds.dat moved to /var/cache/cups.
Just leaves /etc/cups/lpoptions, which I've now handled like this:

%ghost %config(noreplace) /etc/cups/lpoptions

Fixed in CVS.
