Package: cupsys
Severity: normal


as you know, there is a project to make Debian supporting a readonly root
directory, i.e. no process should write in /etc expect at configuration.

But as I saw in the logs cups try to write there:
cupsd[746]: LoadPPDs: Read "/etc/cups/ppds.dat", 67 PPDs...
cupsd[746]: LoadPPDs: Wrote "/etc/cups/ppds.dat", 67 PPDs...

On a readonly root this fails:
cupsd[484]: LoadPPDs: Read "/etc/cups/ppds.dat", 67 PPDs...
cupsd[484]: LoadPPDs: Unable to write "/etc/cups/ppds.dat" - Read-only file=

If it's important to write to this file, you should move it out of the
way. Otherwise you should not write in it. Why does cups write in the
file after it has read it?

Bye, J=F6rg.
