I have used Cups under Slackware and Cups crashed. I reinstalled everything and it would not work again.
I installed Cups under Suse 9.1 and it worked great but it crashed for no reason. I looked up the error message and learned somehow I had to add my machine in Hosts.allow. It worked again.
After some time Cups died under Suse 9.1 again! It was not the same problem. I reinstalled it and it would not work again.
Why do I have such a bad time with CUPS ? Cups is great if it would just keep on working. I have soooo much time invested in fixing cups.
The company that writes cups also has a commercial software. Do you think there are intentinal bugs in it ? Do others have cups working for years without strange 100% crashes that can not seem to be fixed ?
Should I be using something else to print with ? I tried lprng and it seemed very pale in comparison for graphics.
