In my case, I had to build a kernel, 2.6.28-rc8, and disable all hints of ipv6 
in the make xconfig screens.  That worked.

Amanda also worked last night, but didn't get to print the backup report for 
some reason.  I just tested that particular printer profile & a cups test 
page looks fine to me.  I also set cups to share, I assume via samba, the 
configured printers with the rest of the local nets machines.  I thought I 
had that enabled before, but that was before I moved the rpmnew conf file 
into use.

However, I still cannot use the Brother Laser printer.  The only error message 
in the cups error_log is in the middle of a bunch of success lines.
Maybe this makes sense?  From the error_log, modify printer, print test page 
(and that returns success instantly on the jobs screen)  Printer is an 
HL2140, rpms for it from Brother are installed.

Wth is this DNS-SD?  I've never before seen that, nor heard of the term.

I've added the cups list, maybe Mike has some insight here.  This printer has 
not worked since I installed Fedora Unity 8, August 2008 version, after a 
main drive failure.  Everything but dbus is uptodate.  I saw the error 
messages and have been holding that one back, I have enough stuff that 
doesn't work already.

Thanks Craig, and anybody else with a clue.

Cheers, Gene
