Description Thomas M Steenholdt 2002-07-06 07:13:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020625

Description of problem:
The LPRng printing package has been marked deprecated and will be removed from
future versions of linux.

In this case i think it would be a good idea to use another printing system
(CUPS) as the default printing system.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RH Limbo
2.Run the redhat-switch-printer

Actual Results:  The dialog starts up with LPRng as the default printing system

Expected Results:  The dialog should start up with CUPS as the default printing

The release notes need tweaking to explain the situation better.
