cups 1.3.7-2 + hplip 2.8.9-2 broken

Reported by: davekam@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Kamikaze trunk
Keywords: Cc:


I am running the latest kamikaze snapshot, on Asus WL-500W (platform brcm-2.4). I've noticed an issue with hplip since the cups/hplip upgrade from September. The hp backend for cups is broken. First of all /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp is linked to, but the hplip package does not depend on dbus. I suspect it should simply be built without dbus support -- this is how previous versions were and there was no need for dbus.

Even when I install dbus, however, the hp backend is broken -- it simply hangs when run, either by cups or manually. I have no idea why this might be, but have been unable to resolve it.

I've also noticed that the usb backend for cups seems not to be called by cups-deviced. When run manually, however, it works. This is less of a big issue since it's possible to manually add the usb:// address to the printers.conf file.

I would except I have no idea how to fix the issues. I don't know (1) whether cups really needs to build against dbus to function in openwrt, (2) why the hp backend is broken, or (3) why the usb backend is not being called automatically. But I was hoping that explaining the issues in this level of detail would lead to something.

DBUS support is now disabled in cups with [13474].

Running /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp still hangs. The end of an strace (killing with ctrl-c afterwards works) looks like:

ioctl(0, TIOCNXCL, {B38400 opost isig icanon echo ...}) = 0
ioctl(1, TIOCNXCL, {B38400 opost isig icanon echo ...}) = 0
getpid()                                = 9477
getrlimit(RLIMIT_STACK, {rlim_cur=8192*1024, rlim_max=RLIM_INFINITY}) = 0
setrlimit(RLIMIT_STACK, {rlim_cur=2040*1024, rlim_max=RLIM_INFINITY}) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGRT_0, {SIG_DFL}, NULL, 16) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGRT_1, {SIG_DFL}, NULL, 16) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGRT_2, {SIG_DFL}, NULL, 16) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [RT_0], NULL, 16) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_UNBLOCK, [RT_1], NULL, 16) = 0
brk(0)                                  = 0x442ed0
brk(0x443ed0)                           = 0x443ed0
brk(0x444000)                           = 0x444000
open("/dev/bus/usb", O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK|O_DIRECTORY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/proc/bus/usb", O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK|O_DIRECTORY) = 3
fstat(3, {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0555, st_size=0, ...}) = 0
fcntl(3, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC)           = 0
getdents64(3, /* 7 entries */, 1024)    = 184
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, NULL, [RT_0], 16) = 0

Maybe this helps to pin down where the hp binary hangs --- and why.
