That error was fixed by re-installing.
still can't finish the printer install though, got cups started with "/etc/rc.d/rc.cups start", but when I try the advice on line 11 of http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...nting+in+Slack
it wants a password!
This is "go to admin page at http://localhost:631
and set up your printer."
Mandrake was so much easier.
Someone must know a way around the login problem, help?
