Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2002-05-27 11:58:00 EDT
Please attach /etc/alchemist/namespace/printconf/local.adl.  Also, what does 
'rpm -qV printconf foomatic' say?
Comment 2 Harold Campbell 2002-06-09 14:04:56 EDT
$ rpm -qV printconf foomatic
Comment 3 Harold Campbell 2002-06-09 14:07:16 EDT

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2002-06-17 12:08:17 EDT
Please do: rm -rf /var/cache/foomatic/compiled/* 
Does that make the problem go away?
Comment 5 Harold Campbell 2002-06-17 23:51:04 EDT
Yup. That took care of it.
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2002-06-18 05:40:57 EDT
The overview.xml file was very likely incomplete, and removing it caused it to  
get rebuilt properly. 
The current (rawhide) version of foomatic no longer needs this file.
Comment 7 William Hall 2002-07-31 09:17:20 EDT
 I have exactly the same problem as described, but the solution (rm -rf
/var/cache/foomatic/compiled/*) was unsuccessful
Comment 8 Tim Waugh 2002-08-05 12:10:53 EDT
willhall@email.com: Please run 'printconf-backend --force-rebuild' as root.  
Does the problem still happen after that?
