The f17 update of cups to cups-1.5.4-18.fc17 on Feb 25th caused cups to
fail to start.  This update had some security updates with a creation of
a new file /etc/cups/cups-files.conf that apparently can not be written
to by cupsd.

Log errors demonstrated that the lack ssl certificates on this unit
caused cupsd to fail.  I commented the certificates out of
the /etc/cups-files.conf file, and got cups to start, but I still could
not get it to communicate with the cups print server on the network.  

I finally gave up and added the line :


to the /etc/cups/client.conf file and was able to get printer service to
this unit.

Has anyone else had this problem and found the solution other than the
use of the client.conf file.
