Description timothy covell 2002-07-06 00:55:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.18-5.58 i686; Nav)

Description of problem:
Printing does not work after upgrade from 7.2 or 7.3.  Had working HP LJ1200
working under 7.3 but after upgrade /etc/printcap was empty and printing failed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to Limbo
2. Try to print
3. Try to configure a printer

Actual Results:  Printing does not work anymore	

Expected Results:  Printing should have continued with my previous configuration
or should have been switched to a new configuration.

Additional info:

 I copied over the old printcap to the new printcap, but it still failed to
work.  Also, I had to hand load the parport modules.  I'm still trying to get it
to work.   Finally, redhat-config-printer-gui crashes/never starts and
redhat-config-printer-tui crashes with:

What does 'rpm -q pygtk2 python perl' say?

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2002-07-08 16:22:21 UTC
Reproduced.  This is due to an anaconda/rpm bug (not all packages are upgraded).  Fresh 
Limbo installs should work though.
