[SOLVED] CUPS needs a deprecated cups group

 Im having some problems with cups. When i try to start it with OpenRC it tries to checkpaths with the cups group, but that group is deprecated.

Code: [Select]
 sudo rc-service cupsd start
* checkpath: owner `root:cups' not found
 * checkpath: owner `root:cups' not found
 * checkpath: owner `root:cups' not found
 * checkpath: mkdir: No such file or directory
 * ERROR: cupsd failed to start


EDIT: I simply added the group and it worked

I'll take a look.

I just installed cups-openrc and I don't recieve this error, cups should have created a cups group upon install.

It definetively didnt made it in my case, but it was easy enough to manually fix

Now im getting an "Internal server error" when i switch pages in localhost:631 , any idea what could that be?

EDIT: nevermind, just needed to restart
