Description of problem:
In order for a system configured to act as a windows print server using CUPS and
Samba, the CUPS daemon must start before the Samba daemon. In the default RH7.3
install, the order is revered (S91smb, S92cups).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure your linux machine to act as a print server. See URL above.
2. Reboot linux server.
3. Try printing from windows. You will get an error about not being able to
start the print job.
If you modify the start level of cups to 91 and smb to 92, everything works just
I think this is already fixed in Red Hat Linux 8.0: SMB has priority 91 while
CUPS has priority 90.
