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:

I [20/Jan/2003:12:19:22 +0200] Hint: Try setting the LogLevel to "debug" to find
After setting the LogLevel to debug, I got the attached info.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to cups-1.1.17-0.2
2. try to print a pdf document
3. cups fails
After I downgraded to cups-1.1.15-10 (as shipped by default in RH 8.0), printing
started working again
Created attachment 89439 [details]
the relevant log lines from cups/access.log after enabling LogLevel=debug
Can't reproduce this here. What does this say?:
ls -l /usr/lib/cups/filter/cupsomatic
rpm -V foomatic
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.
