cups not running after /etc/rc.d/rc.cups restart

Hey everyone. I have slack 12 and cups. I could print with it until I tried to print a pdf file this afternoon.
the file didn't get sent to the printer.

now, I get this:

root@jan:~# /etc/rc.d/rc.cups restart
cups: restarted scheduler.                                 [  OK  ]
root@jan:~# /etc/rc.d/rc.cups status
cups: scheduler is not running.
/var/log/cups/error_log gives this:

I just tried reinstalling cups.
Now the scheduler is running again.

The printers in question are network printers, and I'm not on the same network as the printers, so I cannot test if I can actually print.
But I guess this topic can be closed.
