Cups/lpr returns "Request Entity Too Large"
 
I just solved the problem on my OpenSuSE 11.1.
lpr was giving me "Request Entity Too Large", with no other indication, what could be wrong. Not even in syslog I found something.
When I straced cupsd I found out, that for some reason, all of my spool directories had been mounted read-only after the last reboot. After remounting them rw printing works again. Hope that helps to somebody with the same problem.

Regards,
didiw

This can happen when there is no disk space available for /var
Please run the command
$ df -h
and see if the partition containing /var is not full
