Error on lpd service startup

***NOTE! This is a bug in the "Null" beta distro - not in RH7.3. I couldn't
select this option in Bugzilla. ***

Description of problem:
I get the following error when lpd tries to start:
Starting lpd: Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/printconf-backend", line 7, in ?
File "/usr/share/printconf/util/printconf_backend.py", line 30, in ?
NameError: name 'gettext' is not defined
No Printers Defined [ OK ]
During installation is seemed to successfully detect my Deskjet 940c, and once
Linux was loaded I selected an appropriate driver, however I still experience
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run /etc/rc.d/init.d/lpr restart
Actual Results: Get error as described above.
Expected Results: Shouldn't get error.
Ok, I changed it to Null - I think that having a seperate "Redhat Linux" and

then be surprised when they can't select "limbo" or "null" or whatever in the
This has been fixed since redhat-config-printer-0.4.22-1, in rawhide.
