On my current openSUSE 10.2 system:

ls -l /usr/bin/lppasswd
-rwsr-xr-x 1 lp sys

I.e. it runs as setuid "lp".

Does "lp" have sufficient permissions to create /etc/cups/passwd.md5
(i.e. does "lp" have write permissions for the /etc/cups/ directory)?


By the way:
Regarding how to re-install CUPS, see

Kind Regards
