Cups backend link to smbspool removed during the upgrade to samba4
Last modified: 2012-05-09 11:34:23 EDT
Description of problem:
During the upgrade from samba to samba4 the link /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb to /usr/bin/smbspool was removed.
As packages are conflicting I first had to uninstall samba and then install samba4 this might have something to do with the issue.
Absence of the cups backend definition of smb was resulting in SMB network printers to be still configured and available, but not printing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
do not know
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e samba samba-common samba-client
2. yum install samba4-client
Link /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb removed
link should exist if there is cups package as of
ln -s /usr/bin/smbspool /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb
Update from samba to samba4 was forced by todays yum update dependencies in the testing Fedora 17 respository
You shouldn't update from samba to samba4 yet. We have pushed new build that attempts to avoid forced updates.
