thank you...I've been extremely patient. He listed out 54 different
files in /etc/yum.repos.d and I took the time, sorted through the list,
tried to figure out the simplest way for him to deal with that mess and
by the time I responded with a plan (10 minutes), he moved all of the
files around on me.

[david@reddwarf ~]$ I know it needs a big clean up.





----
were you expecting things to just clear up by themselves while you make
a complete nightmare of things?

Craig





No I not expecting things happen automatically but I dont have the
confidence

to hack into files and make the mess worse than it already is.




----
OK, try this...(you need root so simply 'su -')

this is supplied so you could simply paste this all after you su to root
per above

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
mkdir NOT-USED
mv * NOT-USED # clear out all repos for the moment
mv NOT-USED/fedora-development.repo.rpmsave fedora-development.repo
mv NOT-USED/fedora-updates-testing.repo.rpmsave
fedora-updates-testing.repo
mv NOT-USED/fedora-updates.repo.rpmsave fedora-updates.repo
mv NOT-USED/fedora.repo.rpmsave fedora.repo

mv NOT-USED/livna.repo.rpmsave livna.repo
mv NOT-USED/livna-testing.repo .
mv NOT-USED/livna-devel.repo .

# at this point, you should be able to yum update without much issue and
I am presuming that the latest installs of fedora-release and
livna-release put their repo files rpmsave because the originals were
tainted.

The rest of the repos you can add by mv the files back but only do 1 or
2 at a time so you will see if any have problems.

Myself, I would probably move the rpmforge.repo back but it might be an
issue depending upon how old it is. Possibly kde-redhat stuff (may be
old), maybe jpackage...again, it could be old and broken

first a question, I will respond after you answer...

can you put all of the other repo files that used to be
in /etc/yum.repos.d into that same folder (NOT-USED)?

What you say may well be true.
But I doubt if it has anything to do with his cups problem.
If cupsd is running then the problem with cups
is likely to be something very simple -
eg perhaps the line "Listen localhost:631" in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
has somehow got deleted.

As far as the problem with yum.repos.d is concerned,
I would have recommended running "grep enabled=1 /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo"
and seen what repos were enabled (probably very few),
and disabling all except fedora and fedora-updates.

As far as cups is concerned, I would run "service cups restart"
and then look in /var/log/cups/error_log
to see what was reported there.

you seem to simply ignore that you prefaced this all with "I haven't
read the whole thread" and yet, you still want to persist with it.

Help if you wish - but he's had no less than 8 people tell him the same
things (about cups)...that's why I objected to your interference.

You may be right about his cupsd.conf - I am fairly certain that he is
missing some cups dependencies but we can't figure that out because of
the complete mess in /etc/yum.repos.d

Now, just to show you how absurd your concept is of grep enabled=1 is...
This was the contents of his /etc/yum.repos.d...

Now if you consider that fedora-updates.repo and
fedora-updates.repo.rpmnew et al, how are you gonna know which one is
from Fedora 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 or whatever?

As I said, you admitted you didn't follow the thread, gave minimal
thought to the issue of his /etc/yum.repos.d condition but feel
competent to give opinions.

Nice...thanks - I'm going to bed and you can help him out.

----
OK, it seemed like a simple yes/no question but here it is now an hour
later and no answer.

This is my suggestion (and I have no idea if it will work) I don't think
that these fedora*repo files were the right ones and I wanted to know
what happened to the 48 other files that used to be in /etc/yum.repos.d
but I guess I won't know that answer tonight.

First you must
su -

Then you can paste this next section into a terminal and it should do
everything

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
mv NOT-USED/fedora.repo .
mv NOT-USED/fedora-updates.repo .
mv NOT-USED/fedora-updates-testing.repo .
mv NOT-USED/livna.repo .
yum update

and report back what happens

I'd suggest something more like this:

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.0.1 reddwarf.localdomain reddwarf

The format of the hosts file is:
IP domain-name alias(es)

NB: There can be several aliases, if you want or need them.

To be super clear, that means you'd type in the password for root, not
actually type in the letters "root_password".

One opens a web browser, and tries getting the local CUPS website to
show, either by browsing to http://localhost:631 or http://127.0.0.1:631
(they're the same thing). At that stage, you'll see the CUPS webpages
for managing your printing. You won't be asked to enter a password
until you try to change configurations. At the moment, you can look at
what's already set, and print test pages. When you need to authenticate
to do something that's restricted, CUPS will get your browser to ask you
to enter logon credentials. Your browser will pop-up a requester,
you'll enter root as the username, and type in root's password as the
password. If you get it wrong, a 401 unauthorised error page will come
back, if you get it right, it'll do whatever you asked it to do.

That is how it will work on a working system. If this doesn't work,
you've got to sort out the cause. It might be worth reading the rpm
manual to work out how to manually install things (such as the
fedora-release package which will give you the standard repos) and how
to forcefully re-install it (look through the man file about replace and
freshen). If you simply delete the repo files and try to install the
fedora-release package while the RPM database says it's already
installed, nothing will happen.

The other advice you've had seems like the right course of action to
follow: Move the repo files out of the way, get the fedora-release
package, re-install it.

I can imagine firewalls and SELinux also could be culprits in stopping
CUPS from working. Not to mention cabling problems between computer and
printer.
