Failed to create ppd database

Opensuse 11.1 X64. System/services says cups is started, when I try to add a printer it asks to restart the cups service, I say ok and it says it's restarted, waiting 30 seconds, then says no local cups daemon is accessible, can't show print queue's, failed to detect print queues. Netstat says it's running on port 631.

Uninstalled and reinstalled, I tried ignoring the error (I know.. As if...) and it says it can't create the PPD database.

http://localhost/631 failes, rccups says life is good.

welcome to LQ!

Up the debug level in cupsd.conf to debug or debug2, restart the daemon,
try adding a printer, stop the daemon and look at the logs

Depending on your distribution they will live somewhere under /var/log,
possibly /var/log/cups/error_log :}
