Hello ALL :

I figure you may have some insight into this.  I have no clue and am at a loss.

What am I doing wrong with cups ?

Dear CUPS :

    I am following along in http://www.cups.org/doc-1.1/sam.html  and
I get to the stage where I need to add my first printer I get strange

    I have cups version 1.1.23 as well as samba 3.0.20

    I have an HP8000 printer at ip address and I
confirmed that it is listening on port 9100 .

    lpinfo reports this :

bash-3.00# /opt/csw/sbin/lpinfo -v
network socket
network http
network ipp
network lpd
serial serial:/dev/cua/a?baud=115200
serial serial:/dev/cua/b?baud=115200
direct parallel:/dev/ecpp0
direct usb:/dev/usb/printer0
direct usb:/dev/usb/printer1
direct usb:/dev/usb/printer2
direct usb:/dev/usb/printer3
direct usb:/dev/usb/printer4
direct usb:/dev/usb/printer5
direct usb:/dev/usb/printer6
direct usb:/dev/usb/printer7

    I also know that my server is running cups and that something is
listening on port 631.

    I have the following file :

bash-3.00# ls -lap /opt/csw/share/cups/model/laserjet.ppd
-rw-r--r--   1 root     bin         9453 Jan 16  2005

And this is what lpadmin tells me :

bash-3.00# /opt/csw/sbin/lpadmin -p hp8000 -E -v
socket:// -m /opt/csw/share/cups/model/laserjet.ppd
lpadmin: add-printer (set model) failed: server-error-internal-error

Any ideas ?
