Description alex.deiter 2011-05-07 17:50:02 UTC
1. Change default location for Cups cachedir from /var/cache/cups to /var/db/cups according to man 7 hier:

     /var/      multi-purpose log, temporary, transient, and spool files
     db/        miscellaneous automatically generated system-spe‐
                cific database files

2. Change permission for Cups cachedir from 755 to 775:

Cups original cups-1.4.6/scheduler/Makefile used 775 permission for cups CACHEDIR:

       echo Creating $(CACHEDIR)...
       $(INSTALL_DIR) -m 775 -g $(CUPS_GROUP) $(CACHEDIR)

with 755 permission we have errors in cups errorlog:

E [07/May/2011:18:57:55 +0400] [cups-driverd] Unable to write "/var/cache/cups/ppds.dat" - Permission denied

Could you please review attached patch ?
