Re: Bug#655203: local CUPS on diskless workstations fails to start during boot

I observe local CUPS crashes on nearly every diskless workstation boot.
With local CUPS I refer to the cupsd process that gets started on
diskless workstations themselves. The server CUPS process is ok.

I tried booting my test diskless workstation twice, and cupsd started
every time.  Any idea how to reproduce the problem?

If the local CUPS of diskless workstations fails to launch, printing
from diskless workstations is not possible.

Yeah, it would be a fatal problem.

I wonder, if the CUPS daemon on diskless workstations needs the ltsp
tmpfs filesystems to be in place for working correctly (write access
to certain folders). If so, then we have to tweak the boot sequence
on diskless workstations a bit more for this...

As far as I know, all file system fixes are done in rcS.d/, while
cupsd is started from rc3.d/ and rc5.d/ which have to be after rcS.d/.
There must be some other explanation.  Any ideas?

I guess I have to re-test with a squeeze-test image...
