Hey Group;

SuSE 10.3 Beta2

I use runlevel 3 just for info.  I have recently had a problem with my
printer which was found readily by Yast2.  The problem is that every
time I go to print I needed to run Yast2.  I think I have found the
problem.  In /etc/init.d/rc3.d there is mentioned in the README a S20lpd
linked to ../lpd.  But there is no ../lpd script.  The README mentions
"/etc/init,d/lpd start" and "/etc/init,d/lpd stop" but there is no lpd

lpq sees a print job waiting. lprm will remove so cups seems to be OK

Printing is done by cups AFAIK in 10.3a* no lpd script in /etc/init.d on this box and printing works no problem

Thanks Pete;

Well then check out their README in /etc/init.d which say "lpd start"
and any note about rc#.d which shows ../lpd. Which is not even in /etc/init.d. And if anyone can explain why Yast2>Hardware>Printer has to be run to get it to print. It may be a problem with Yast2 are /etc/sysconfig not getting set.
