Again. php.ini is where the extension will be called. You may have more than one copy floating around on your system (it happens).

Not sure what we want to do about this. Rumor has it Firefox can be recompiled with ALSA support put back in, but from what I'm reading in that whole train wreck of replies, it may break more things.

Where are we at with Pulse Audio support within the distro?

Thought I had already mentioned this:  when I send my browser to localhost (aka idlegion39), it opens the index file.  but if I try to open wp-admin/wp-install.php, I get
Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.
Apparently, just installing and running mysql is not enough!
I can find no place in the httpd.conf or mod_php.conf files that refers to mysql.  There several in php.ini but they seem to be setting variables.
Any suggestions?

If you would like to try some local hacking, open a terminal and issue these commands:
Code: [Select]
su -
mkdir -p cups/src
cd cups/src/
cp /usr/doc/cups-2.2.2/cups.SlackBuild .
sed -i s/2.2.2/2.2.3/ cups.SlackBuild
chmod +x cups.SlackBuild
cd ../
upgradepkg cups-2.2.3-i586-1vl72.txz
/etc/rc.d/init.d/cups start

Long version: In a terminal, become root. Make a directory "cups" with a sub-directory "src" and change to it. Copy the script for building cups from /usr/doc/cups-2.2.2 to this location. Edit the script to change the version number from 2.2.2 to 2.2.3. Make the script executable, then execute it. Script will download sources, create the package and place it in the directory above "src". Change to that level and upgrade the package. Finally, execute the start command for cups.

If all goes well, you should now be able to use the "Manage Printing" from your menu, under "System", and hopefully get your printer working.

Another good catch!  :)

CUPS won't start on my system either. Stay tuned for updates.

Attempted to install my printer, brother mfc685cw

I have the scan and print drivers and the cups wrapper as txz

installed via installpkg in root terminal

 gave error for /var/spool/lpd/mfc685cw

created folder/lpd in var/spool

driver appeared to install / cups wrapper gave error

vector cupsd: Unable to read "/etc/cups/cupsd.conf" due to errors.
cups: unable to restart scheduler.
lpinfo: Bad file descriptor
lpinfo: Bad file descriptor
lpinfo: Bad file descriptor
lpadmin: Unable to connect to server: Bad file descriptor

Manage printing from ice menu opens browser but page fails for localhost:631/

updated gslapt and reinstalled cups..same

this is a wireless printer and did work on VL7 std as I recall

my guess was cups is missing something but no idea what or if true

On a positive note xsane works with my canoscan n670u scanner

edit: the brother mfc685cw wireless scanner works with xsane
