Mandriva: Updated cups packages to address initscript bug Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake A bug in the cupsd initscript could prevent a system from coming fully online if the CUPS daemon does not get actually started (for example if CUPS config or cache file are corrupted or port 631 blocked) by continuously attempting to see if the cups server is available without a timeout. Updated packages are provided that correct the issue.
