Problem accessing CUPS
 
Fresh installation of Slackware64 14. Tried to access CUPS via http://localhost:631/ on Firefox. Unable to connect. What kind of settings should I check? Ultimately trying to use a Samsung ML-1630.

As root:

Code:

# chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups
# /etc/rc.d/rc.cups start

Now try again.

Entered this and rebooted. CUPS came up as you promised. My internet connection (eth0) simultaneously died! Re-entered netconfig with the same info as the first time. Rebooted. Nothing. I may be a linux idiot but this makes no sense at all (I do not drink or use mind altering substances).

enabling CUPS doesn't kill any Internet connection

Then I guess the Tooth Fairy did it. The ONLY thing I did between Internet and No-Internet was KikiNovak's commands. And I can't seem to get it back. I had checked the MD5 hash on my ISO image and did the SLOW format on a new hard drive. I am going to try a complete re-installation.

It's extremely unlikely that is necessary. In fact, it's extremely unlikely that it would even help.
You should be looking at resetting your router (or whatever device(s) connect directly to your computer).
Also, you do realize http://localhost:631/ is a page on your local machine, yes?

Re-installed. Internet back. Ran CUPS with driver from Splix 2.0. Printer status went from Stopped to Processing, processing forever. Looking for an OS to be able to run Nvidia drivers and CUDA. Might try openSUSE on another HD.

One word of advice: only slay one dragon at a time.

Here's the CUPS documentation for Slackware. A bit old, but still valid.

And here's how you get NVidia drivers to work.
