Question CUPS not listed in KDE Service Manager


Yesterday I upgraded my kernel to 2.6.14-1.1653.

Today I tried to print a document from Open Office 2.0, and was informed that CUPS could not be contacted.

So I looked at the Service Manager and discovered that CUPS was not there.

But when I looked in /etc/rc.d/init.d, cups was there.

And, when I did a sudo /etc/rc.d/cups start, CUPS started fine, and I could print with no problem.

So, my question -- well, two questions:

1) Has anyone else seen this?

2) Why is CUPS no longer listed in the services list?

For now, I've added the cups start to my rc.local, but that seems a kludge.

Try;

If needed;

chkconfig --levels 345 cups on

Thanks!

Here's what I found:
Code:
$ /sbin/chkconfig --list cups
service cups supports chkconfig, but is not referenced in any runlevel (run 'chkconfig --add cups')
$ sudo /sbin/chkconfig --add cups
Password:
$ /sbin/chkconfig --list cups
cups            0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
Now the only question is, why had it been deleted?

Cannot really say, strange however it should not have happened IMHO......

Maybe you should file a bug report (or at least check for this) over at buzilla.redhat.com

Yes, maybe so. I think I'll wait a while to see if anyone else bites here. If it's only me, I'll just assume that Murphy was just playing with my system.

I did check the rest of my /etc/rc.d/init.d entries, and the only other services not known to chkconfig (or obviously not needed as a service) are all Bluetooth related, and, since I don't use Bluetooth, that didn't surprise me.

Code:
$ for x in `ls -1 /etc/rc.d/init.d`;do /sbin/chkconfig --list $x 1>/dev/null; done
service dund supports chkconfig, but is not referenced in any runlevel (run 'chkconfig --add dund')
service firstboot supports chkconfig, but is not referenced in any runlevel (run 'chkconfig --add firstboot')
service functions does not support chkconfig
service gdm-allow-login supports chkconfig, but is not referenced in any runlevel (run 'chkconfig --add gdm-allow-login')
service gdm-early-login supports chkconfig, but is not referenced in any runlevel (run 'chkconfig --add gdm-early-login')
service halt does not support chkconfig
service hidd supports chkconfig, but is not referenced in any runlevel (run 'chkconfig --add hidd')
service killall does not support chkconfig
service pand supports chkconfig, but is not referenced in any runlevel (run 'chkconfig --add pand')
service single does not support chkconfig
service zzz-bootup-complete supports chkconfig, but is not referenced in any runlevel (run 'chkconfig --add zzz-bootup-complete')
Oh, I use kdm, not gdm, so the gdm login support services don't need to run on my system.
