Additional info:

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
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-04-08 06:17:21 EDT
Works here... 
Can you reproduce it on another machine if you connect it to the same printer?
Comment 2 Joachim Kunze 2002-04-13 08:49:37 EDT
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
that means
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2002-04-14 07:16:54 EDT
Was the crashing machine SMP by chance?
Comment 4 Joachim Kunze 2002-04-28 08:29:35 EDT
No - a Celeron 1 GHz machine on an ASUS CUSL2-C mainboard
Comment 5 Joachim Kunze 2002-04-29 15:42:12 EDT
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
