No, localhost:631 is not there. I know it has been there and working
because we used cups to print a document the other night. How do I install
it? Probably trashed something trying to get the network to run.
It may be on a different port. Try running 'netstat -lpt' as root and you
will get a listing of all TCP ports that are accepting connections and which
program is listening on each.
What is the relationship between CUPS and printcap file which I do not seem
to have. Don't I need that?
CUPS does not use /etc/printcap at all. (That file is part of lpr, lprng,
and other traditional printing systems, which CUPS is not.) However, some
applications expect /etc/printcap to be there and use information from it.
BTW: Response, Not my idea, the installfest guys were trying to solve a
network problem which remains. Are you any good at debugging why two nic
cards do not seem to work together on a machine?
Are they the same chipset or different chipsets? Are they common cards or
very new/exotic? In that case getting a driver directly from the
manufacturer or from the driver developers may be necessary. What does dmesg
P.S. If you still want help from LERT please don't hesitate to mail
