Heh... I went with the chanting option on that one... none of the others are valid on any Linux box I use, and the mystic chanting fits my past experience of CUPS setup...

Hehe, oh my! For some reason I get a picture in my head of Barack Obama and David Cameron dressed in black robes and doing a dance while chanting at a printer! Now, where's that psychiatrist? ;)

Isn't that "restart" method just some Red Hat wrapper for /etc/rc.d/ scripts? I have always thought so since I haven't seen that program shipped with any distribution after ditching Red Hat Linux 6 ten years ago.

Though I admit I could be wrong. I haven't even tried using "restart" because running an init script works with every distro and is much more logical.

I'm sitting in front of a RHEL5 box... no 'restart' command here that I can find...
