Description Sarantis Paskalis 2003-01-20 13:06:07 UTC
Description of problem:

After upgrading to errata cups-1.1.17-0.2, the printing system stopped working.
The logs in /var/log/cups are like this:

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2003-01-20 14:46:25 UTC
Can't reproduce this here.  What does this say?:

ls -l /usr/lib/cups/filter/cupsomatic

And this?:

rpm -V foomatic

Comment 3 Sarantis Paskalis 2003-01-20 15:11:30 UTC
Oops, my mistake.

Last week, I did some rpm-cleaning from stale rpms installed from over
2 years ago.  I thought foomatic was needed only by LPRng, so I removed it.  Now,
I think I did reinstall foomatic before downgrading cups, and it still did not
work, but then again maybe not.

Anyway, sorry for the inconvenience.
