Description Gerald (Jerry) Carter 2003-05-22 18:57:20 UTC
/etc/printcap can be changed or CUPS can add printer 
under Samba.  Need to refresh the printers list periodically
rather than requiring all smbd's to get a SUGHUP.

re-polling printers is required in one more case. If you start cups after 
samba then samba won't see your printers. That's sad of course :)

I'm closing this one out.  After looking into 
it some more, it seems that there are better places 
to spend energy.  New printers are always available 
via UNC path.  And a simple 'smbcontrol smbd reload-config'
updates the displayed printer list in the network 

Maybe later sometime if this gets to be a higher priority.

originally reported against 3.0aph24.  Bugzilla spring cleaning.  
Removing old alpha versions.
