Amanda Tape Server Host Check
-----------------------------
Holding disk /dumps: 363102208 kB disk space available, using 362590208 kB
slot 5:read label `Dailys-5', date `20081109151648'.
NOTE: skipping tape-writable test
Tape Dailys-5 label ok
Server check took 1.191 seconds

Amanda Backup Client Hosts Check
--------------------------------
Client check: 1 host checked in 2.655 seconds.  0 problems found.

(brought to you by Amanda 2.6.2alpha-20081208)

So that is fixed.  I wonder if cups is too?  No, selinux, which is back to 
enforcing now, is denying cups any access to lp3.

Nope, even after manually copying one of the 3 identical HL2140.ppd files 
into /etc/cups/printers/lp3.ppd, it prints blank sheets of paper, and logs, 
when I try to change the default paper size to letter from A4:

E [10/Dec/2008:21:12:25 -0500] CUPS-Add-Modify-Printer: Unauthorized

And I've run thru the delete/add at localhost:631 until I have run out of 
options, even going so far as to set the perms identical, no change in the 
error messages.

Your turn.
