Description Jack Johnson 2003-06-27 17:25:05 UTC

Description of problem:
When running cupsaddsmb, it incorrectly calls rpcclient:

rpcclient localhost -N -U'root%password' -c 'adddriver "Windows 4.0"

According to the rpcclient man page:

  The config parameter is defined as follows:

                   Long Printer Name:\
                   Driver File Name:\
                   Data File Name:\
                   Config File Name:\
                   Help File Name:\
                   Language Monitor Name:\
                   Default Data Type:\
                   Comma Separated list of Files

If you check the entry in the call, there's one too many colons, and as a result
only the first file in the driver list gets installed on the client.

The fix is easy, in cups-1.1.17/systemv/cupsaddssmb.c:

# diff cupsaddsmb.c.orig cupsaddsmb.c.new

It could probably be done with a patch.

I have not checked the current cups sources at easysw.com yet.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install & configure samba, cups & the Adobe PostScript drivers per the
2. run cupsaddsmb -U whoever -a
3. use a Win9x host to attempt to automatically install the drivers

Actual Results:  The complete set of drivers do not load on the Win9x host.

Expected Results:  The complete set of drivers should have loaded on the Win9x host.

This is fixed in CUPS-1.1.19, which is now in rawhide.  Thanks.
