I searched the forum and found only a little help so here is the problem:
Just used up2date to get the latest kernel. There were other updates available as well but it was hanging when i tried to do them all so i went to only the kernel first. On reboot the system hangs when starting CUPS. I did an interactive boot and canceled the CUPS load and configured the new kernel with ntfs RPMs and updated the rest (including CUPS). I thought this would have fixed it but alas, still hangs on CUPS.
Is there a way round this anyone knows of? Or even a way to stop it trying to load CUPS every startup?
thanks in advance
