What version of redhat-config-printer do you have (rpm -q 
Also, when was the last time that it worked?  A previous beta, or 7.3?
Comment 2 Brian Hughes 2002-09-20 11:45:16 EDT
It's 0.4.21-1 for redhat-config-printer and redhat-config-printer-gui.  It last
worked on 7.3.  I also noticed a error in starting the lpd as follows:

Starting lpd: Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/printconf-backend", line 7, in ?
    import printconf_backend
  File "/usr/share/printconf/util/printconf_backend.py", line 30, in ?

Which of course brings up the question of where to obtain 0.4.22-1?

Rawhide has 0.4.23-1 and after downloading and installing I've traded the old
error message for:

[root@ipa init.d]# ./lpd start
Starting lpd: Fatal error - Cannot bind to lpd port '515'
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2002-09-20 13:16:05 EDT
That's bug #71712; the rawhide cups package fixes it, or do this: 
chkconfig cups-lpd off 
service xinetd reload
