Description of problem:
The machine completely locks up, when starting the initscript cups
No remote login possible
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. running redhat-switch-printer to switch to the cups
2. starting /etc/init.d/cups
Actual Results: system hangs
Expected Results: printdeamon cups should be ready to run
cups worked since RHL 7.0 without any issues, I've never experienced such a
problem with cups.
The actual rpm-version of cups is cups-1.1.14-12
Can you reproduce it on another machine if you connect it to the same printer?
On another machine with the same printer cups starts without crashing. But the
printing process hangs after some % with the message USB port busy, whatever
Was the crashing machine SMP by chance?
No - a Celeron 1 GHz machine on an ASUS CUSL2-C mainboard
Problem resolved after an update to kernel 2.4.18-0.26 and cups 1.1.14-15 - may
another package could also be involved - it was an update with the rpms from today
