Wednesday: 10mins * Started vncserver on zeck as user mathis. Not sure why it wasn't running. * Scheduled rpm update on ellen. Thursday: 2.5hrs * Scheduled update downloaded packages, but didn't install them due to missing keys. Tried installing the right keys, but "speex" had some key I couldn't find. Eventually switched off key checking temporarily. * Downloaded a "PPD for the OkiPage 16n/PS":http://www.oki-osd.de/downloads/012/95027-04.exe * The KDE printer manager didn't like it, so I installed it manually to /usr/share/cups/model/ and added the printer through the "cups web interface":http://zeck.floop.org.uk:631/ * Had problems with the permissions of files under /etc/cups not allowing root to access and update them. Could be an issue with the security clampdown from Bastille setting the default umask to something secure. Have changed the owners of /etc/cups files to root. * Set access permissions on zeck's cups server to allow from local 192.168.1.* network, anonymous access to printers, simple http authentication access to administration.
